Building the Sharing & Collaborative Economy in South Australia
Join us for an interactive workshop aimed at sharing success stories, building peer-to-peer learning and mapping out new directions
The sharing and collaborative economy offers us ways to reduce our resource consumption, strengthen community connections and build a vibrant, compassionate, sustainable economy. The aim of this workshop is to build networks and strategies for strengthening small scale, local sharing initiatives. Come along and share your stories, or just come along to listen and learn – everyone’s welcome.
Please note - to keep this event free and accessible for everyone, no catering will be provided. Lunch can be purchased from nearby cafes or you're welcome to bring your own.
DONATIONS will be invited at the door to help cover the organising costs of the event
