April Rinne, Chief Strategy Officer of Collaborative Lab, will be touring Canada for a series of presentations on how the collaborative or “sharing economy” has the potential to transform the way we design products and services, create sustainable and “shareable cities”, re-imagine public services, reduce waste and connect communities.
The Sharing Economy Tour is part of the launch of Cities for People, a collaborative experiment initiated by the Foundation that brings multiple stakeholders together to take action in creating resilient and livable communities. The tour is co-sponsored by Social Innovation Generation (SiG) with local partners in Montreal, Toronto, Calgary and Vancouver.
Collaborative Consumption and The Sharing Economy: Opportunities for Cities, Organizations, and Well-Being will be presented on the following dates:
