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.

    Sharing Circle for Creative Solutions

    What makes you happy & what do you wish you could do more of? What are your blocks?  

    The Sharing Circle for Creative Solutions is an opportunity to sit around the table with 7 other local entrepreneurs, freelancers or small business owners to openly share an area where you’re feeling stuck or challenged.  In a gently guided workshop, we will be looking for insight, wisdom and support from the group.

    Although your challenge will be personal to you, as small business owners, it is more than likely that others will have faced the same or similar.

    You will be sent a short questionnaire in advance to help you to focus and articulate what your blocks are; how you would like your your business to develop and your goals and ideas.

    Participants will collectively draw upon their own experiences & knowledge to share fresh ideas to help you focus creatively on your personal challenge.

    You will leave with 2 clear solutions to explore and action.

    This will be a guided day with some structure, to ensure we have equal voices and input. Lunch included.
