CC를 시작한지도 어느덧 한 달이 된 이 날 플플의 식구들의 모두 모여 치맥데이를 거하게 치뤘습니다!

플플 사무실에서도 싱글벙글한 플플 식구들이 게스트하우스에선 한층 더 싱글벙글한 모습으로 치맥에 취했습니다. ImageImageImage

서로 옹기종기 모여있는 깨알같은 모습의 플플 식구들 😉


플플이 계획한 PPP(PlayPlanet Party)인 <만나니 참 좋습니다>에 오셨던 ‘최민지’씨(오른쪽 첫번째)도 자리를 함께 했습니다. 그리스 로컬여행 당시 찍은 사진으로 <만나니 참 좋습니다>의 사진 콘테스트에서 1등을 하셨는데, 이제는 그 사진이 우리 플플 대문을 장식하고 있습니다 😀

플플 식구들과의 첫 자리임에도 불구하고 정말 잘 어울렸던 최민지씨! 플플에 와서 자주 즐기다 가도 된답니다! 우리는 언제나 환영이에요!


언제나 크리에이티브한 아이디어로 플플 식구들을 깨우는 Novi 🙂 사진 속 Novi는 무슨 생각을 하고 있을까요?


마지막은 서로의 성격을 잘 나타내는 단체 사진!

웃음 가득한 플플 식구들 😀



2014년 2월 13일 우리의 치맥데이.

단순히 이 시간을 즐기기보다는, 지난 일을 뒤돌아보고 더 나아지기 위해 서로 플플에 관한 이야기를 나누는 시간도 가졌습니다.

2달 남짓 남은 CC들과의 플플. 이 2달이 CC들에게는 플플에서 많은 것을 배우는 시기로, 플플은 CC들로 인해 많은 발전을 이루는 시기가 되었으면 합니다.

Sharing is Caring

Publicerad 28 March 2013 by Nathalie Sajda

[Original Article] http://socialinnovation.se/sv/sharing-is-caring/

The S(e)oul of Asia aims to become a ‘Sharing City’. Forbes Magazine refers to it as an ‘unstoppable force’, replications of AirBnB or TaskRabbit pop ups as mushrooms and 2013 is named as the year of the Sharing Economy – Seoul bandwagons the trend and sets out the be the ‘Sharing City’.

South Korea is a key country when observing the rising trends in social innovation and social entrepreneurship in East- and South East Asia. The passing of the Social Enterprise Act in 2007 and the election of Park Won-Soon for Seoul mayor in 2011 are only two amongst other milestones that have indicated the embracement of social entrepreneurship as guideline in addressing the societal issues arisen in the wake of the financial crisis in 1997.

Park Won-Soon is the founder of South Korea’s first social enterprise The Beautiful Store and a think-tank known as The Hope Institute (the South Korean SIX Asia partner) and now a strong supporter of the initiative to establish Seoul as a ‘Sharing City’.

AirBnB acts as the most acknowledged example of the sharing economy but there are hundreds of smaller, and growing, enterprises aiming to partake in the movement. The sharing economy, at times also referred as collaborative consumption, cannot fit into one definition but share the same core value of sharing one’s resources.

Some claim that the acceptance of the sharing economy derives in the economic stagnation since 2008, while others argue that the sharing economy is an expression of a more conscious and responsible capitalism. Whatever standpoint, the sharing economy is a growing trend that has caught the attention of entrepreneurial creativity, the acceptance of the customers and is on the edge of shaking up the perception of ownership and consumption.

Seoul’s ‘Sharing City’ aims ambitiously to promote a sharing consumption in the megacity of 10,5 million inhabitants. Seoul’s sharing paradigm initially concentrates towards tangible resources, such as parking slots, spaces or other goods, and does so by supporting 20 sharing programs and launch policies in order to build a solid infrastructure stimulating micro-entrepreneurialism and business opportunities in the quest to tackle the societal issues facing Seoul.

But the sharing economy carries more value then merely the exchange of resources; it is also acts as a force to enhance the sense of community through meetings and communication. One passionate advocate of the sharing economy as a melting pot of people is Sun Mi Seo.

Sun is the co-founder of the first South Korean social enterprise in the sustainable tourism-sector and now working on her second social start-up called PlayPlanet. PlayPlanet is an online platform where travellers and local hosts share experiences offline, while raising awareness and contributing with positive impact. Sun means that the fundamental pillar of the sharing economy lays on trust, without the social trust the exchange of resources would be impossible.

The sharing economy represents thus a localization of interaction where resources are utilized more efficiently. And like in the case of PlayPlanet the sharing economy triggers an innovative model to gather people, change old perceptions and strengthen the peer-to-peer communication.

And though the sharing economy is to a broad extend an online phenomenon, it shall not be forgotten that it is the offline interaction that generates the impact of less waste, decreased consumption and increased social-trust.

Seoul carries the advantageous to have a highly online-connected population but it is the offline enterprises like PlayPlanet (promoting sustainable tourism), Kozaza (providing empty rooms for tourists by local Korean hosts) or GreenCar (car-pooling) that will make the citizens of Seoul to start sharing. Because in the end of the day – what is the need of any sort of economy if its fundaments do not care for social and environmental progress?


News! playplanet has been authorized as a sharing business in Korea by Seoul city!

For more, please check playplanet facebook to see the Seoul Sharing Economy event April 19. We will update all the photos of that day, too. Stay tuned~ Let’s play planet!
