Buy Less, Share More: Free Webinar on How the Sharing Economy Improves Wellbeing

When

04/12/2018    
6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

The most pressing challenges facing us today – including wealth inequality, climate resilience, technology addiction, and social isolation – have the potential to be mitigated by improving the ways that we share vital resources with each other. Join a free webinar with NOW, ShareShed and Shareable to explore this topic. 


What Shareable refers to as “the real sharing economy” is already connecting communities together, enabling creation and connection and lowering rates of loneliness. There are also powerful examples of the power of sharing to support community-led disaster recovery efforts and to work under the radar to meet the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

This webinar features Tom Llewellyn from Shareable as the guest and will be hosted by the Network of Wellbeing (NOW). We will explore the following topics:

  • How we can work with others in our communities to create shared culture and a greater sense of place.
  • Pathways to opting-in to creativity and connection over transactionalism and consumerism.
  • How sharing our time, skills, and stuff can reduce loneliness while promoting social inclusion.
  • Why we need not fear ‘others’ during times of crisis and disaster.

We will also hear more about Share Shed Totnes during this webinar, as one example of the sharing economy in action!
