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.
