Shareable’s annual global #MapJam is almost here! From San Francisco to Beirut, people around the world will come together in a few weeks to pursue a shared goal — to map all the sharing resources in their cities to support the creation of equitable and sustainable sharing cities. Help us to put sharing on the map from April 4-17.

If a MapJam hasn’t already been scheduled in your city, now is the time to sign up to host one.

If this is your first MapJam or if you’ve attended one in the past and have any questions, join us on April 6, at 12 p.m. PST, for a #MapJam Q&A session just click on this link to join (no pre-registration required).
