Global Sharing Week 2017 is shifting the focus away from what’s wrong with the world, to what’s right with it: the sustainable economic system known as ‘the sharing economy’. That's why this year's theme is the social impact of sharing.
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 economy movement that extra bit of momentum.
Examples of events can include: clothes swaps, food shares, disco soups, picnics, skills swaps, grub clubs, give and get markets, potluck dinners, bake shares, co-working hackathons, maker fairs, reuse / recycling events – you name it.
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 get registering and join the ranks of sharers putting the sharing economy on the map.
What will you be celebrating this year at Prairie VegFest 2017? Whatever it is, we'll be right there with you! Join us for a week of "Pop-Up Intentional Community" -- a conscious celebration for farmed animal, human and environmental justice. Prairie VegFest brings together a diverse group of socially and environmentally conscious folk who come together to share knowledge, experience, skills, and creative talents in a peaceful, natural setting. Prairie VegFest is hosted by Forever MicroRanch: A Community Living Project, in Southwest Saskatchewan, where rescued farmed animals and human folk live as co-citizens within a community model that aims to demonstrate a kinder, more compassionate way forward, while illuminating issues of nonhuman, human and environmental injustice. Come - Celebrate with us! Can't wait to see you there! *only 75 tickets will be sold*
