Welcome to Global Sharing Week

The world is being transformed by sharing. And there's no better time to discover just how much impact it has than Global Sharing Week. Add your sharing event to the Global Sharing Week map and help us shift the focus away from what’s wrong with the world, to what’s right with it. No event is too small, no act of sharing too insignificant. From individuals to corporations, our annual mass engagement campaign is the largest because it celebrates all the wonders of the sharing economy.

This year's theme? Sharing Can Change the World.

Sharing has the power to change the world, it can transform the economy and society at large. By enabling people to come together, to access shared resources and promote the benefits of swapping, borrowing, collaborating and sharing, we can unlock our unlimited sharing potential and build a more connected, happier, healthier, sustainable society. Taking place between June 16th to 22nd, Global Sharing Week events happen all over the world. You can find and register events on our global map.

Where You Come In

Did you know there are over £3.5 trillion worth of idle human and physical resources in the world – and that unlocking access to these could solve major global challenges? So get your Global Sharing Week event on the map to give the sharing movement that extra bit of momentum. Whether you are a community group that runs clothes swaps, a business that shares knowledge or a charity that promotes volunteering, this is a chance to let the world know about the sharing you already do. Events can be offline or online, examples include: pop-up picnics, business skills swaps, grub clubs, give and get markets, sharing flashmobs / random acts of kindness, potluck dinners, bake shares, co-working hack-a-thons, crowd sing-a-longs, maker fairs, reuse / recycling events, toy-hacks – you name it. Check our 7 awesome ways to get involved.

Who can join?

Anyone can register an event. As long as it unlocks access to skills, knowledge, time, goods, food etc. it’s definitely Global Sharing Week material. So register your event, and join the ranks of sharers putting a fairer, caring, Sharing Economy on the map.

Last year, Global Sharing Week 2018 saw 456 events take place in 247 cities, across 39 countries on every continent! It was a tremendous success and we reached over 100 million people worldwide. We’re confident, this year we can do even better.
