Today I am going to speak about The notion "Spaces and exchanges" which deals with the geographical and symbolic areas that all societies occupy and the interactions between men and different societies. Our world is built on the exploration and conquest of new spaces On the other hand  An exchange is the act of giving or receiving something in substitution for something else. In today’s modern-day world these exchanges can take several forms:  economic – for instance: work exchanges, exchange of goods, trading across borders ;  or cultural – exchange of ideas, information, education. these exchanges became easier thanks to the internet and international trade has enabled us to expand our markets for goods and services that might not have been available to us.  These different cultural, economic, sociological and language interactions have transformed and characterised our modern-day world – sometimes for better, sometimes for worse.

Among all of the propositions offered by the notion “spaces and exchanges “I chose to speak about sharing economy. I will be discussing about what is the impact of the sharing economy on our lifestyles and traditional business? 

to define certain notions of the problem, sharing economy corresponds to the sharing of resources such as goods and services, it allows people to transact directly with one another. Lifestyle means the way of life. And the traditional business corresponds to the commercial activity.

A popular example is people who rent out a spare bedroom in their apartment. The sharing economy allows people to save money or to make money. In the case of home-sharing it’s a win win situation. It also have environnemental benefits because it reduces waste and the production of goods. For example, when you carpool you reduce greenhouse gas emissions. But this system of sharing is not so new thanks to a text studied in class we learned that during the world war II American citizens were encouraged to share cars in order to save gas that could be used for war planes and ships to help win the war . Sharing cars or “carpooling “was a patriotic thing to do. Today there is no world war going on and sharing is no longer considered a patriotic thing to do. But more and more people are turning to sharing because they are tired of consumption at all cost and are concerned about protecting the environment. In recent years sharing economy has really risen indeed concepts have been created pretty much everywhere. For instance, in class we analysed a report in England on a share shop system : Library of things, it is like a library but instead of borrowing books, people borrow items : people join for free, browse the online catalog,
