Background

SHE is a concept. Its idea is to help making hospitality exchange sustainable, i.e. it is generated by itself, through the conditions it shapes.

Hospitality Exchange is the process of interaction between host and guest, possibly facilitated by transparent trust networks. How can these networks best be implemented to facilitate sharing nicely among 'strangers'. Plus, how sustainable are these networks?

What do we mean with sustainability? Sustainable can mean different things. First of all the concept of endurance, future existence and continuity. It also includes respect towards surroundings, environment, members, society etc.

One of the methods to discuss the concept of She is to create an Open Space conference to share experiences, knowledge and ideas about sustainable hospitality exchange. Open Space technology meetings create time and space for people to engage deeply and creatively around issues that concern them. The agenda is set by the participants who bring forward topics they would like to learn more about or discuss.
