Mark your calendars: June 3rd to 10th
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. Transforming 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 visit the Global Sharing Week website to 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. Check out here a bunch of images from the differents events that happened all over the world during the week.

Our backstory
At The People Who Share we believe everybody should experience the benefits of sharing. This is why in 2012 we created National Sharing Day – a day to celebrate sharing and encourage people to share. National Sharing Day was a huge success and became Global Sharing Day. In June 2015 we decided to go BIG, and we created Global Sharing Week. With activities and campaigns happening all over the world, #GlobalSharingWeek reached over 100 million people worldwide with over 126 registered events on every continent! We are proud to say that Global Sharing Week it’s the world’s largest mass engagement campaign helping millions of people to discover the Sharing Economy! Check out all the sharing action on Twitter.
