Meet Vancouver’s Sharing Economy this Thursday!

The “sharing economy” is a big buzzword these days, but often the talk is all about big tech giants like Airbnb or Uber. 

What we don’t often hear about is the groundswell of community-owned and operated sharing initiatives that are helping to give more of us access to transportation, tools, education, office space, gardening space, food, art and thing-making space, and even cute dogs, while reducing our cost of living and improving our quality of life

"Collaborative consumption" also helps us minimize our environmental impact and brings us closer to others in our community - creating a more connected, safer, more resilient city.

This Thursday, I’d like to invite you to meet a group of sharing orgs and enthusiasts from around the city who have been working for the last year on a project we’re calling Share Vancouver. Our goal is to help increase access to a more sharing lifestyle, through events, advocacy and shared resources. 

Our second event is also our second MapJam, where we crowdsource intelligence about collaborative economy activities and initiatives and plot them on a map (this map in fact!).  

It’ll be a great opportunity to meet participants in Vancouver’s Sharing Economy and other share-curious folks like yourself at one of the city’s newest, most exciting shared spaces, MakerLabs!

We’ll have food (from Nuba!), booze and lots of opportunities to interact. (No boring speeches, we promise!)

Sharing organizations participating are Modo, the Vancouver Tool Library, TradeSchool Vancouver, HiVE Vancouver, Part-Time Pooch, Share Shed, go2gether, Vancouver Community Laboratory, MakerLabs, Vancouver Cohousing and more!

» RSVP via Eventbriteand please share with your friends and colleagues. The $10 cover goes to cover the cost of the space and food by Nuba! 

Thanks and I hope to see you there! 

Join our group to stay connected to Share Vancouver via Facebook!

Help spread the word:

This morning, I decided it was more important for me to pick a bouquet of the season’s last blooms than be on time for work.

My friend Jiamei picked this up for me in Thailand years ago. Makes me think of her thousand-watt smile every time I wear it. Happy birthday, gurl!
