Éco2Fest is an innovation camp to prototype a zero-waste society, taking place in Montreal from August 9th to 14th.
This 1-week accelerator is intended for existing BtoC, prototypeable projects with a positive environmental impact. With the help of experts, the opportunity to interact with thousands of citizens, and rapid prototyping, 5 entrepreneurs will see several key areas of their initiative accelerated: business, marketing, and production.
Sharitories is a global project with a very practical scope: to create a Collaborative Territories Toolkit for local policy-makers around the world who wish to implement collaborative or sharing initiatives in their local areas and help them thrive

Taking place during the 3-days of OuiShare Fest Paris, Fest Forward will accelerate 3 open source projects with a high, measurable positive impact in the areas of sustainability, social development or decentralized governance.
OuiKit is a project that supports the mutualization and circulation of resources (equipment, skills, etc.) both within the OuiShare community and between other organizations.

The labor market is shifting towards an on demand model, the so-called gig-economy. By 2025, 540M people will be part of it through the use of work platforms.

This study focuses on the governance of this new type of organization and introduces the five principles of design necessary to set up a positive platform.
