Global Sharing Week 2018

June 3rd-10th

 

Celebrate the social impact of sharing

The world is being transformed by sharing. And there's no better time to
discover just how much of impact it has than Global Sharing Week. Add
your sharing event to the GSW 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? Social impact.
The sharing economy is the Future of Life. As it transforms the very fabric of
society, this year we're highlighting all the good in the world brought about by
sharing. Taking place between June 3rd to 10th  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 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. 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 the Sharing Economy on the
map.
 
Last year, Global Sharing Week 2017 saw over 354 events take place in 113
cities, across 34 countries on every continent! It was a tremendous success and
we reached over 5.5 million Twitter accounts. We’re confident, this year we can
do better.

There are 130 registered events.

    German Language Exchange Group

    Hi Friends,

    Since there are still quite a number of members interested in learning or practicing German, we'll make this a weekly event.

    However, because of the uncertainty of NATIVE German language speakers attending each session, it could be good if either you have some prior German experience or knowledge that you could converse a little bit with other members. OR, each member could bring some materials RELATED TO German language learning (e.g. textbooks, or articles, or grammar or vocabulary lists, etc.) so that you could impart some of your freshly learned knowledge to other members. Let's try this out for a few sessions, and when we can get some regular attendees or the format could be fixed, then we'll stick to a pattern of group learning.

    Thanks again for all interested members!! Let's try to work this out!!~~~~~

    +++ Update: We changed the venue. Now Brotzeit at 313@Somerset +++
    +++ Brotzeit at 313@Somerset, 2nd Floor. We have Aircon and a nice place for communication.

    *** We get 10% Discount of the whole menu ***

    Cheers,
    Addis (Cang Xuan)

    • What to bring
    Pls bring your smartphones so that you could send each other digital information.

    • Important to know: If you COULD NOT attend on the day, PLEASE have the courtesy of changing your status to "NO" so that the organizer or group leader could have a better sense of the situation beforehand. Thanks.

    FREE Language Exchange - English / Cantonese

    Language Exchange - Hong Kong is a local and international community of language learners of all levels that come together to improve their language skills and make great friends.

    In this community, people from different cultures and linguistic backgrounds will have the opportunity to sharpen their language skills, while helping others to do the same. Currently we do weekly language exchanges with English, Cantonese and Mandarin and select special events in other languages. Its lots of fun and it's free!

    Language Exchange usually starts with a fun ice breaker that gets people talking, then moves to a quick vocabulary lesson. After this, the bulk of the time is spent on actual conversation with each other. At the end of the exchange you will be a better speaker and have a bunch of new friends!

    We have fun games and activities that utilize our knowledge of English or Cantonese to learn new grammar points and practice our conversation skills through various weekly topics that are applicable to use in your everyday speaking life.

    Try “Speed Swap” - Use the grammar points learnt in class to practice in one on one conversations with a wide variety of people!
    This is a chance to have quick conversations with people, without feeling the pressure to hold a conversation!

    Try “Group Chat” - Make friends both international and Chinese as you practice points learnt in class in group discussions!
    This is a relaxed way to chat openly in the language of your choice and lean new things about your friends!

    Who can you meet at Language Exchange?

    - At Language Exchange we have people from all over the world!
    Meet people from countries like America, Australia, the UK, Europe, Canada and some funny countries you have never even heard of! These people are studying or working in Hong Kong as teachers and business people, bringing a wide variety of skill and background to Language Exchange Hong Kong!

    - It’s also a chance to meet Chinese, who may be studying to enhance their English skill like you, or are looking to exchange their native language for yours! Whoever you meet at Language Exchange Hong Kong, you are sure to learn new and exciting things as well as make friends for life!

    Do I need to have any previous English/Cantonese/Mandarin skill?

    - No, you don’t need any previous language skill, Language Exchange Hong Kong is bilingual so you won’t have any problems understanding! Just come with the confidence to learn something new!

    Do I have to speak in a foreign language?

    - No, Language Exchange Hong Kong is a relaxed and friendly environment, we encourage people to speak and learn something new, but there are no requirements to speak if you are uncomfortable.

    Do I need to bring any English or Cantonese textbook?

    Stratton Mountain Trailhead in Stratton, VT

    Stratton Mountain Hike

    To register for this event, please see the full trip description and contact the trip leader. Start time and other trip details will be emailed to participants a week before the event:
    https://activities.outdoors.org/dashboard/admin/search/index.cfm/action/details/id/106179/

    Come join us for an early June hike in Vermont! Stratton is on the list of New England's Hundred Highest, and measures in at just under 4000 (3940) feet. We will be hiking via a section of Vermont's Long Trail, with an out and back hike that measures at approximately 7.6 miles. The majority of the hike is in tree cover, culminating with a clearing and fire tower at the top. Stratton offers phenomenal views of the Green Mountains and Southern Vermont. The climb to the summit is steady, and this hike is of moderate difficulty. We will be gaining just under 1800 feet of elevation in under 4 miles meaning that, even if you have not done a ton of hiking but are in good shape, this would be a good hike for you! We will be hiking at a 1.5-2 mile per hour pace. If you have previous hiking experience, and/or are a peak bagger, come join us for some early summer fun!

    This hike is being hosted by the Young Members (20s and 30s), but ALL ARE WELCOME. We'd love to see you, and to help you get outdoors.
