The #SharingSpring is a decentralized movement that’s, well, springing up all over the world. Here at Shareable, we’ve rounded up #SharingSpring events, documented the Spring Clean Swap, Skillshare and DJ Party in Detroit, the Somerville Skillshare in Massachusetts and the A2 Sharing Summit in Ann Arbor, provided ideas and resources for hosting a sharefest, launched our Sharing Cities Network online hub and more.
But what's most exciting is the action being led by local sharers around the world. Want to keep up with all the activity? A great way to do that is to follow the #SharingSpring hashtag.
Below, we’ve rounded up some our favorite (among thousands!) #SharingSpring tweets, status updates and Instagram posts. If you’re organizing or participating in #SharingSpring events, be sure to hashtag your posts, photos, links and videos. We’d love to see what your community is up to, and share it!
