Crowd Expedition is a unique two-year project in quest of the real added value of the Collaborative Economy. The Collaborative Economy is the umbrella name for practices such as crowdfunding, crowdsourcing, slacktivism, co-creation and the sharing economy. All hugely valuable and inspiring developments, yet the question arises: what’s really new? And what’s just hype? What are the thresholds? And how can we lower them? How do you get the best value out of these practices? How can we apply them to sectors and activities where you would not in first instance expect them? And last but not least, how do we connect this new economy to the current (old) economy in a sustainable way? Especially since all that is old is not necessarily bad.
The Crowd Expedition team seeks together with 25 partners and 80 experts to answer these and other questions. Every 3 months we will treat another theme, 8 themes in total. In order to create a vision and concrete steps on the Collaborative Economy’s future and its added value and potential. Off course Society 3.0 is one of the partners!
