The concept of sharing within communities isn’t something new. In fact, it goes back thousands of years, to a time when people didn’t really have much. Nowadays, this notion has made a comeback but with a twist. Welcome to the age of the "collaborative economy”.
It’s an ecosystem built upon the partaking of human and physical resources. At its heart is a marketplace for the exchange of ideas, experiences, used goods, underutilized spaces and so on. It's a far reaching movement which has impacted human relationships, notions of ownership and, more importantly, our lives in general.
Our host, Henry Golding, embarks on a journey across 3 Asian countries – South Korea, China and Singapore - to discover how the collaborative economy has transformed the way people shop, meet, eat, sleep and even relate to one another.
