Shareable is an award-winning 501(c)3* nonprofit news, action network, and consultancy for the sharing transformation.

What’s the sharing transformation? It’s a movement of movements emerging from the grassroots up to solve today’s biggest challenges, which outdated institutions are failing to address.

Behind these failing industrial-age institutions are outmoded beliefs about how the world works — that ordinary people can’t govern themselves directly; that economic growth leads to shared prosperity; and that more stuff leads to happiness.

Amid crisis, a new way forward is emerging — the sharing transformation. The sharing transformation is big, global, and impacts every part of society.

New and resurgent solutions are democratizing how we produce, consume, govern, and solve social problems. The maker movement, collaborative consumption, the solidarity economy, open source software, transition towns, open government, and social enterprise are just a sample of the movements showing a way forward based on sharing.

The sharing transformation shows that it’s possible to govern ourselves, build a green economy that serves everyone, and create meaningful lives together. It also suggests that we can solve the world’s biggest challenges — like poverty and global warming — by unleashing the power of collaboration.

At the core of the sharing transformation is timeless wisdom updated for today — that it’s only through sharing, cooperation, and contribution to the common good that it’s possible to create lives and a world worth having.

And herein lay the engine of the sharing transformation: When individuals embrace sharing as a worldview and practice, they experience a new, enlivening way to be in the world. Sharing heals the painful disconnect we feel within ourselves, with each other, and the places we love. Sharing opens a channel to our creative potential. Sharing is fun, practical, and perhaps most of all, it’s empowering. Sharing enables us to experience and do things we never thought possible.

We at Shareable can say this because we’ve experienced the sharing transformation ourselves. We are sharers. We’ve told the stories of sharers to millions of people from all over the world since 2009. We’ve seen this transformation time and again, in people from all walks of life. It’s why we do what we do. It’s why we believe the sharing transformation is unstoppable.
