Collaborative approach is transforming the world. It is not only digital, but massively a new approach, new ways of human interaction, in line with the emerging – and soon leading – Y and Z generations. It refers to new expectations, a deep trend for humanity, for sharing common goods or knowledge. This will transform not only production (with diffuse workshops), not only finance (with crowdfunding), not only services (with “uberization”), not only knowledge and intellectual property (with opensource movements), but also the social and humanitarian field. What will be shared, how will it go, what will be the consequences on existing organisations? Answering these questions is the aim of this project.
Can major changes in humanitarian and social action be foreseen?
