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.

    No 38 The Park, 38 Evesham Road in Cheltenham, United Kingdom

    Supper With Petershan Nurseries

    After a visit to Petersham Nurseries you’ll feel as though you’ve been away from London but now you actually can escape to the country award-winning chef Damian Clisby and head gardener Thomas Broom host a one-off feast at Cheltenham’s No.38 The Park. The menu features homegrown and wild ingredients; slow-cooked shoulder of lamb with chickpeas, aubergine, cumin and basil and Petersham Prosecco, wild strawberry and rose jelly pudding. Almost certainly too pretty to eat.
