ShareFests: Celebrating an Economy for the People in a City Near You
When Shareable and Center for a New American Dream decided to launch the ShareFest initiative, we had very modest expectations that 5-10 cities would step up to host an event. Amazingly, communities from around the world in the Sharing Cities Network have hit it out of the park with 40 ShareFests - some with several thousand participants (Belgium), one with over 40 activities (Porto Alegre) and one month-long ShareFest of 30+ events in Oakland! And many, many more sharing events happening this #SharingSpring. We wanted you to see for yourself what the fuss is all about, so we made this ShareFest Video.
