At The People Who Share, we organise free community events to promote good citizenship, help you to connect with others in your local community and find the shared goods and services you need for your every day lives. We promote volunteering and education, enabling the sharing of skills and knowledge and we protect, promote and care for our planet by promoting shared use, reuse, upcycling, and diverting resources from landfill. We run quarterly Sharing Economy Network meetups, community events, skills exchanges, clothes swaps, food shares, innovation and inspiration days, workshops and events for the annual Global Sharing Week.
Join us at an event near you soon.
