Today we hear mostly about the sharing economy as a new phenomenon, but cooperative economic models have existed for many years, especially in Montreal.

What can we learn from these already-existing models? How do these self-run organisations operate? What differentiates the sharing economy from the participatory economy from the solidarity economy? What impact do these types of socio-economic organisation have on our communities, be it in the spheres of agriculture, food, housing, but also art?

The discussion will be held in French.
