The Sharing Project supports the development of neighbourhood sharing initiatives . We work with local governments, funders and communities to initiate and scale neighbourhood sharing models. Models such as tool lending libraries, shared office spaces and shared workshop spaces.
Our work started off with research, where we surveyed over 700 residents of Vancouver and published our acclaimed report. We then set out to engage with communities to understand what initiatives currently exists and created a shared map that acts as a central resource for people looking to engage in the local sharing economy.From there, we understood the demand for the type of sharing initiatives that serve the local community and leverage the availability of idle assets.
We now focus on the scaling and development of neighbourhood sharing initiatives. Initiatives that are proven to create healthier, more resilient communities through their positive impact on social connectivity, household ecological footprint and household finances.
