Collaborative consumption is an economic model based on sharing, swapping, trading, or renting products and services, enabling access over ownership. Including three distinct systems: 1. Redistribution markets: Unwanted or underused goods redistributed, 2. Collaborative Lifestyles: Non-product assets such as space, skills and money are exchanged and traded in new ways, 3. Product Service Systems: Pay to access the benefit of a product versus needing to own it outright. (1),

A Shareable City enables residents to efficiently and safely share all kinds of assets – from spaces to cars, skills and utilities – to create stronger, healthier and more connected communities. In the United States, 15 mayors signed the Shareable Cities resolution in summer 2013, declaring their support of the sharing economy. (2)
