This years theme for OuiShare is: Exploring the edges!
5 years after the rise of the ‘Sharing Economy’, the question arises: what’s next? What new models of ownership & governance do 21st century organizations need? How will we ‘work’ in a post-industrial world?
OuiShare, an international collective and think tank on collaborative economies and digital transformations is holding its 4th annual OuiShare Fest in Paris, May 18-21 to address these questions. With the aim to ‘explore the edges’ of the economy, society and ourselves, this 4-day conference brings together 1500 creative leaders, entrepreneurs, movement builders, purpose-driven organizations and communities from 40 countries who are dedicated to driving systemic change. A space for conversation, collaboration and experimentation, OuiShare Fest gathers all these stakeholders to work on creative solutions to solve the complex issues of our time.
This years theme “After the Gold Rush”, goes beyond the Sharing and Collaborative Economy by featuring discussions around topics such as Civic Tech, Commons, Ownership & Governance, Open Source, Decentralization, Blockchain, Startups, Platform Coop, Zero Waste, Basic Income, the future of work and education. The subjects will be discussed by international thought leaders that include Nilofer Merchant (Author), Gavin Wood (Ethereum), Lisa Gansky (the Mesh), Sebastian Bazin (CEO, Accor), Arun Sundararajan (NYU Stern School of Business), Stephan Tual (Slock.it), Derek Razo (Enspiral & Cobudget) and Mara Balestrini (Ideas for Change).
OuiShare Fest encourages participants to reflect critically on the various subjects and is characterized by its multi-faceted and interactive approach. This year, each day will focus on one perspective, starting with Evolving Systems (May 18), moving on to Re-shaping Organisations (May 19), and ending with personal and individual transformation (May 20). From the systemic, the institutional, down to the individual level, OuiShare Fest seeks to connect the dots between pioneering individuals and organizations and help these envision and build a future we want.
