Amid rising popularity and disruption, where is the UK collaborative economy headed? Nesta has created six possible future scenarios for the UK collaborative economy.

Looking ahead to 2025, each scenario highlights some of the key trends and assumptions that are currently driving forward this space, such as micro-entrepreneurship to environmental sustainability to local economic development. By no means exhaustive or exclusive, the scenarios are intended to stimulate discussion and prompt reflection on the future of the collaborative economy – and how we can influence this future.

To start the discussion, we’ve asked Tooley Street Research to consider each scenario. Their responses can be found at the bottom of each scenario.
