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 101 registered events.

    WIEM-Women In Environmental Management & EHS related careers

    Hello!

    We know you probably won't make every meeting--hey, we're all busy no matter what stage of our career we're in. The Environmental and Health & Safety professional world is smaller than you think and it becomes even smaller when you meet some of the other women who do what you do. So, come and compare notes about companies, management systems, programs, jobs, new regulations, new food, old wine, and whatever else comes to mind. Be social with other women who "speak your work language" and live real lives.

    The format for the group is a monthly dinner. Dinners are informal and social and are not meant for sales activity. Each member is responsible for their own dinner and beverage costs as there are no admission charges. As such, we try to select restaurants that are willing to provide separate checks, but occasionally restaurant charges will be combined with others at your table.

    A note about dinner...in order to plan, like any event, it's important to be able to let the restaurant know how many people will be coming. So, we will really appreciate it when you RSVP for the dinners (and any other events). The restaurant will be happier, and we'll be able to coordinate more effectively. Likewise, if you were going to come, but no longer can make it, please DO change your "Yes" to a "No."

    If you have a question or "share" for the group, feel free to ask via MeetUp or via an email request to kathydoyle@reliefehs.com. Professional "shares" or questions in the past have included: job postings; recommendations on training resources; services someone needs (but can't find), and sharing related to EHS compliance issues. Please respect that this MeetUp distribution and WIEM's email list are not to be used for marketing products or services to members.

    You can set up your membership to give you daily emails or weekly communication summaries. If you have any questions about how to use MeetUp to it's fullest (or easiest), just ask about that as well.

    Thanks again for joining us. We look forward to seeing you soon!

    Kathy

    The ULI Product Councils are sector focused, closed door forums for candid exchange of best practice.  ULI UK currently has three Product Councils:

    • Infrastructure & Regeneration (chaired by Paula Hirst, Disruptive Urbanism and Hugh Roberts, Planning & Development Consultant),
    • Residential (chaired by Russell Pedley, Assael Architecture)

    Our Councils will convene on the 4th June, ahead of the ULI UK Annual Conference.
    Details of their programmes are as follows:

    ULI UK Residential Council

    09:30-12:30       Construction Modernisation: Myth or Reality?
    Plexal, HereEast, 14 E15 2GW, E Bay Lane, London E15 2GW

    A recent report by the National Audit Office entitled ‘Using modern methods of construction to build homes more quickly and efficiently’, stated that new alternative methods of residential construction could reduce build time by more than a half.  This could enable up to four times as many homes to be built with the same on-site labour and, according to the report, with similar levels of building performance to those constructed by traditional methods.

    At present approximately 15,000 homes in Britain are built using modular construction. A drop in the ocean against the government’s target of 300,000 new homes a year.  So why aren’t these new methods being adopted, what are the advantages and risks and what is the true potential to help solve our housing crisis?  A panel of industry experts will debate the realities of construction modernisation at this morning event organised by the ULI UK Residential Council.

    Speakers

    • Rosie Toogood, CEO, Legal & General Modular Homes
    • Alastair Parvin, Co-founder, WikiHouse Foundation
    • Alan Grant, Digital Reality Consultant, Sublime Shared Immersion
    • Mark Farmer, CEO, Cast

    Registration for non council members to open shortly.
