How to Kickstart Your Local Sharing Movement

ShareFests are participatory events designed to connect the local sharing economy that range in size from intimate 20 person sharing events within community organizations like timebanks, to large three day public gatherings with over 3,000 people! A ShareFest can be a powerful way to kickstart the sharing movement in your city, attested by cities across the world that have organized them from Santa Rosa, CA to Paris, Ann Arbor, MI and Ghent, Belgium and many places in between.

ShareFests are the perfect opportunity to bring people together who are just as interested in sharing and excited to create a more sharing city together. For newbies, it’s one thing to read about the sharing economy, and another to experience how rich life can be living in it first hand at the ShareFest. If your city is already well on its way to becoming a sharing city, a vibrant ShareFest will help demonstrate that we are part of a greater movement and aren’t alone in our work!

What can a ShareFest include? It’s up to your community to design it with local flavor. Read more HERE>>
