David Van Seters brings illuminating view of shared economy to Board of Change event
People packed into the SAP Canada building in Yaletown on Thursday night for a wonderful evening with David Van Seters, president of Sustainability Ventures and pioneer of the "shared economy" principle. The event was hosted by Board of Change, a unique organizational network that seeks to value the pursuit of sustainability as equally as the pursuit of profit (in other words, to make money and make meaning).
Seters spoke about how technology has empowered people to share, swap, borrow and barter assets in unprecedented ways, and how this sharing has helped to create business opportunity while reducing redundancy and environmental waste. See the VO tweets from the event below:
