Join the Global Sharing Week celebrations

Register your Global Sharing Week event to shift 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’.

 

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.

There are 125 registered events.

    Jane's Place Clothes Swap

    I love clothes swaps! I've been running and attending regular swaps for years and decided to host one at Jane's Place as part of Global Sharing Week.

    I've invited image consultant, Jo Bunner from The Good Clothes Philosophy along to provide valuable styling tips but more importantly to share her ethos of how to shop in a sustainable and ethical way (Jo stopped buying 'new clothes' 5 years ago and relies on charity shops, clothes swaps, vintage fairs, car boots etc...instead. A truly inspiring approach from an image consultant! You can read more about Jo's 'eco fabulous' approach here www.goodclothes.co.uk/ecofabulous.html

    Derby Book Festival's Book Swap: Opening Event with Sebastian Faulks

    Our Opening Event will feature internationally renowned author Sebastian Faulks, whose latest book, Where My Heart Used to Beat, returns to what has become a recurring theme in his novels: war and love. It is a tender portrait of a man and a century. Probably his best-loved novel, Birdsong, vividly depicted a British soldier’s experience on the frontline during the First World War
