Could something as simple as sharing be a key remedy to hyper consumption and waste, while building community at the same time?

Collaborative Consumption is an exciting emerging economic force which rests on the idea that access to products is more important than ownership of them. It’s happening through the traditional ideas of sharing, bartering, lending, trading, renting, gifting and swapping, being redefined by technology and peer communities. And it’s transforming business, consumerism and the way we live.

Join us for this exciting evening that includes guests from Zipcar, Life is a Gift, Lourish, CamLETS and more, to learn more about Collaborative Consumption and how you can be a vital part of it in Cambridge.

Organised by Cambridge Carbon Footprint. To book please email info@cambridgecarbonfootprint.org, or call 01223 301842. More info at www.cambridgecarbonfootprint.org.
