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.

    Tools Library promotion in Baranovichy, GA

    Tools to share

    We will meet at the local library. Many people do not know what a library of tools is. We'll talk about the library of tools again and also tell why it's important to share tools and other things and not buy new ones.

    Booker T. Washington Park in Charlottesville, VA


    Let's kick off Global Sharing Week by enjoying some fruit together! A fruitluck is exactly like a potluck except no cooking or recipes are required. Just bring your favorite fresh, ripe, raw, washed fruit to the park--enough for you and a few others--and a knife and cutting board if your fruit needs it. 

    We won't reserve a shelter, but there are some picnic tables at this location (with plenty of shade and/or sunshine--your choice!). Please bring a chair or a blanket for the grass if you would like and some water to drink if you need it.

    Also feel free to pack a basketball, frisbee, or any other game that sounds like fun for an afternoon at the park. All ages are welcome!

    Meeting Place: We'll gather under the trees at the upper level of the park near the playground. 

    We have a Facebook event page where we'll post updates:

    Meet the expert

    On Monday 5 June, I am inviting a maximum of 7 local entrepreneurs, freelancers or small business owners to a free, full-day workshop with a local social media and digital communications specialist.

    It’s a huge subject, and is constantly changing; and we want you to get your queries tackled, so I will ask for your specific questions in advance. This is a fully accessible and inclusive session so whether you’re just getting started, consider yourself to be a pro or have been sitting on the sidelines — our specialists will be able to help. You will leave the day having not only learnt how to address your specific social media question, but have the opportunity to apply that new found knowledge in practice with the support of a specialist. 


    The morning will offer an opportunity to present questions and discuss challenges in a group session.  

    In the afternoon, we will take action on our challenges collectively, with the support of the group and our expert.

    • Welcome coffee and tea and 9 am with a prompt start at 9.30 am
    • A simple vegetarian lunch of soup or salad will be provided (weather dependant) and a sweet treat too
    • Finish at 2.30, with time for a chat and informal networking before a 3pm finish
