27 Mar Collaboriamo a OuiShare Fest 2014
Paris from May 5 -7:
Collaboriamo joins Ouishare Fest 2014 with the workshop
“Sharexpo: International Exhibition and sharing economy” – tuesday May 6th 9.30
The goal of the workshop is to understand the opportunities and challenges for using collaborative services during major events. All starts from Sharexpo, the path promoted by Collaboriamo with its partners to propose initiatives for testing collaborative services during the period of the Universal Exhibition in Milan.
Expo 2015 in Milan will be a great chance to promote the sharing economy in Italy as a mean to empower locals and fulfill the overflow of services demand by visitors from all around the world.
Just by a numerical point of view, current lodging, mobility, food and tourism service providers will be inadequate to meet the millions of tourists expected in the Milan area during the event.
But the real estate for sharing economy is offering tourists a true p2p experience in accessing services shared with them by locals, living their homes, tasting their specialties, travelling and wandering with them in the north west area of Italy, so much industrially developed and so much underestimated by an environmental, artistic and historical point of view.
Locals would greatly benefit on the economical, cultural and citizenship sides.
To let locals engage the event and tourists enjoy an undisclosured Italy, and to have local government endorse the sharing economy startups despite legacy trades reaction, some blocking issues must be addressed ahead of time regarding at least regulations, insurance, safety and taxation.
The team from collaboriamo.org, is working heavily on these themes trying to clearly identify the specific problems and watching how governments all around the world are trying to solve them.
This is why we would like to make a workshop showing the sharing economy opportunities for Expo 2015 in Milan and working with all participants to complete and refine our view on what is going on in other countries, in order to write a document about the best practices and the specific actions that could benefit all the Expo stakeholders.
The document will be presented to citizens and local government in a big event about the sharing economy for Expo that will be held in June in Milan.
We want to make a difference in Milan, and we know that Ouishare Fest will be a unique chance for sharing experiences, getting inspirations and building a great proposal for Expo.
The workshop will take place in two sessions. A first introductory session will frame the opportunity (15 minutes):We’ll focus on the process used for the project , in order to propose it as a model for the testing of collaborative services during major events.
Later, a co-creative (25 minutes) participants will be divided into four thematic groups (transport , food and accommodation, employment, leisure) ideally with maximum 5 people per group.
Each group will be asked to to brainstorm and answer questions about the opportunities offered by sharing services and what challenges arise.
Before closing pop-up workshop, moderators of each group will have 2 minutes report the results of the work in order to have a complete picture of what has emerged.
