To coincide with the presentation of Nesta and Collaborative Lab’s new report exploring the UK’s emerging collaborative economy, we were joined by a number of prominent figures operating in this space to discuss the collaborative economy in the UK.

The ways in which we consume, contribute and participate are changing. Amidst volatile markets and the rapid proliferation of digital technologies, a new swell of collaborative organisations and activities has emerged. The implications of these emergent models of exchange are significant for policy makers, entrepreneurs and for the public.

At this event, we considered some of the challenges and opportunities presented by the collaborative economy.

This event was part of The Unusual Suspects Festival - a four-day festival that blended international expertise and innovation with local thinking and practice from across the UK.

The Festival took place in London during 2 - 5 September 2014 and was curated by the Social Innovation Exchange, Collaborate and The Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation.
