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
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.

    Volunteer- cook for the hungry & homeless

    New to town? Friends moving away? Looking for new, fun friends that you'll see more than once at meet-up events? Then The Girls (Madison) is for you! This group is run slightly differently than most meet-up groups. Membership is limited to encourage people to participate in events with some frequency.

    New members are required to attend an event in the first 6 weeks, and then once every 1-2 months after that (understandably people get busy so there is definitely some leniency in the attendance guidelines once you establish yourself as an active member). In some cases, an RSVP deadline will be noted in the event description; you can change your mind as often as you'd like up until that point. Everyone gets 2 no-questions-asked late cancellations/no-shows after the deadline per 6 events they attend, but please do update your RSVP and/or send a note to the event organizer so she knows not to wait for you!
