Benita and Sophie will share stories of their three-year extraordinary journey to meet the inspiring change-makers who are saving and transforming lives through the Sharing Economy. They will also be joined by some of Brighton's finest change-makers featured in Generation Share
including HISBE, Thousand41000 and global book sponsor TrustedHousesitters, to showcase how this phenomenon is creating a thriving, sustainable and fair future for all.
Expect an evening to showcase the very best that Sharing City Brighton has to offer.
Generation Share takes readers on a journey around the globe to meet the people who are changing and saving lives by building a Sharing Economy. Through stunning photography, social commentary and interviews with 200 change-makers, Generation Share showcases extraordinary stories demonstrating the power of Sharing. From the woman transforming the lives of slum girls in India, to the UK entrepreneur who has started a food sharing revolution; you'll discover the creators of a life-saving human milk bank, a trust cafe and a fashion library who are changing the world.
A collaboration between speaker, change-maker and global Sharing Economy expert Benita Matofska and photographer Sophie Sheinwald, Generation Share brings to life the phenomenon causing the most significant shift in society since the Industrial Revolution. Published by Policy Press, who specialise in books about social change and printed sustainably from waste materials and compostable, each copy of Generation Share sold will help educate a slum-based girl in India (one of the featured Generation Share projects, Aarti Naik's Sakhi School for Girls) and plant a tree (via the Eden Poverty and Reforestation Project) helping to share the love and inspire more sharing with every purchase.
