Festival of Transition

This 24 hours is about sharing within your community.

Streetbank and The People Who Share are all working to inspire and motivate people to share in their communities.

The People Who Share is a social business and movement dedicated to building a Sharing Economy. We work to bring sharing into the mainstream and prove that we live better together. Join us on 20th June for National Sharing Day, which will see thousands of people coming together to share and prove that most of what we need is right on our doorstep.

Streetbank is a website that enables you to lend, give away or share skills and items with your neighbours, creating a local network that acts like a giant garden shed, tool-kit, fancy-dress chest, DVD library and skills bank all rolled into one. Streetbank believes that sharing lies at the heart of thriving communities, supporting neighbours to connect and collaborate.

To get your 24 Hours of Sharing underway, here are some inspiring ideas from Streetbank and The People Who Share:

  1. Sign up for free to www.streetbank.com where you can connect with all the other Streetbank members in your area. That way you can start offering your skills and items and you can find out what they have to share with you too!
  2. Join the 10 Million Sharers campaign and help get 1 in 6 of the British population sharing.
  3. Have a Zocalo, a Mexican tradition where people put a chair outside their front door and share food and conversation with their neighbours. Check out how some Brighton residents had fun with Zocalo in September 2011.
  4. If you’re looking to travel, why not try car sharing or rent a car from your neighbour. If it’s a lift you’re looking for, there are plenty of options.
  5. When it comes to sharing physical space, the possibilities are endless, from sharing storage to parking.

If you’ve got other great ideas for your 24 Hours of Sharing, we’d love to hear from you: and or Facebook or Twitter (@street_bank and @peoplewhoshare).

Happy Sharing!
