My work at REconomy Project has inspired me to believe that a credible alternative to our current system is now emerging at an incredible rate. In this 12 minute TEDx talk I explore the unstoppable rise of the collaborative economy. The problem is that I’ve long been a fan of TED and given the opportunity to do a talk i got so nervous and cut the talk short by about 5 mins. Firstly, here’s the video of the talk and below i’ve elaborated some of the missing detail. Some of the most important gaps are in the information economy and collaborative economy sections. In fact i’m still learning so it’ll all evolving!! I hope you think this is an “idea worth spreading”.
About the author:
Shane is an REconomist, entrepreneur, environmentalist and dreamer. He left the UK at 17 to discover the world, without money, direction or date of return – just a fascination for big questions like “is a better world possible?” 20 years later, his current work with the Transition Network’s REconomy Project exposes him to the rise of the new economy and a possible answer. Shane is a co-founder of the REconomy Project and also runs a small carbon consultancy.
