From shared carpentry studios to modern hitchhiking systems, this innovative study by sustainable design visionaries Jégou and Manzini contains a wealth of ideas for creating new shared services and making existing models more appealing and effective. Owning less, sharing more, and utilizing systems that make cooperation easy could propel us toward a new future of sustainable communities that can maximize the potential of our space, time, and energy.

This idea has been tried many times. Hope this is the time the idea will catch on and become truly a way of life. Not simple to make happen because so many habits must be changed.
