Lost in Transition?

A three-day festival about the collaborative economy

Paris. May 20-22 at Cabaret Sauvage




1000 collaborative economy visionaries, coming together for three days of conference, co-creating and connecting.



OuiShare Fest is a three-day festival about the collaborative economy, taking place at the Cabaret Sauvage in Paris from May 20-22, 2015.


In its 3rd year, the event will gather 1000 people to explore the future of movements such as collaborative consumption, open source, makers and fablabs, coworking, crowdfunding, alternative currencies and horizontal governance - movements that are transforming cities, organizations and civic action worldwide.


Yet the pioneers of these movements face many challenges today. They must solve complex issues, from regulation, to financing, to organization in times of environmental, economic and societal uncertainty.


Lost in Transition?


Transition, transformation, shift: these are words we hear a lot lately to express how the economy, environment, politics and business are changing. What exactly are we transitioning to? What direction would we like to go in? What could a collaborative society look like?


Entrepreneurs and social innovators, non-profit and business leaders, grassroots activists and public officials are gathering in Paris to ask these questions together and look for possible answers. They are coming to debate, build and co-create the transition to a collaborative society. Will you join them?
