Doing it for sharing: how to get involved for GSW16!

March 15th, 2016
by The People Who Share

Since we launched our 1st ever Global Sharing Day three years ago, we’ve been focussed on making our flagship campaign a key event in the Sharing Economy calendar - and woah, have we succeeded! Growing from 161 partners with a reach of over 60 million people in 147 countries on that one sharing day in 2012, we’ve now grown into a whole week of celebrations with a stellar reach of 100 million people in 192 countries.

With events happening in Bali to Amsterdam, our mission to help people discover that the exchange of skills, opportunities, goods, services and even time was the way forward to leading happier, healthier and more sustainable lifestyles was in full bloom.


By bringing awareness to the importance of sharing and it’s endless possibilities, we’ve become the largest people-driven campaign for the Sharing Economy to date... but why stop there! This year we’re hoping to make Global Sharing Week bigger and better than ever, and we need your help to do it!
