We propose an interactive session to discuss the pros and cons of the sharing economy and how sharing can be promoted. We would also introduce share-pa.com, a platform, developed by the speakers, for peer-to-peer sharing. The platfrom connects lenders and borrowers and assists in keeping track of the items shared. As the website is in the beta-testing phase, we would like to get feedback from the participants on the platform, on our ideas for increasing adoption and brainstorm on the challenges and potential solutions.
The flow of the talk / presentation is (the draft slides are attached)
1. Why buy, when you can share?
2. Introduction to Share-Pa
3. How it works
4. Challenges (interactive session)
5. How can you help
