Financing the Global Sharing Economy - Executive Summary

The executive summary of a report by Share The World's Resources outlines how governments could mobilise over $2.8 trillion to finance the global sharing economy as an immediate global priority - but this will only happen with an unprecedented groundswell of public pressure for sharing and justice.

Rethinking the Global Economic Order

In a presentation given to a distinguished audience from Eurasian countries, STWR highlighted the need for the international community to immediately end life-threatening deprivation and needless poverty-related deaths by implementing 10 redistributive policies that could strengthen and scale up the ‘global sharing economy'.

Christian Aid’s Renewed Focus on Sharing

Of the many and varied examples of organisations, professionals and engaged citizens across the world that call for greater sharing in our societies, here's one example from the NGO world: Christian Aid's new strategy for 2012 that puts sharing at the centre of its work and campaigning priorities.  

Expanding the Debate on Global Sharing

The age-old concept of sharing is increasingly being discussed in relation to political and economic issues, even though a public discussion on the importance of global sharing is still in its early days. But there are many signs that this is beginning to change - and there are lots of reasons why we should all get involved in the emerging debate.

Connecting the Dots in the Sharing Community

The sharing economy is becoming more popular than ever before with its emphasis on accessing and sharing resources rather than owning them. And now there are signs that the concept is being gradually broadened to include more political, environmental and global justice issues, as highlighted by a number of articles and events in recent weeks. 

Sharing at the House of Commons

Is it possible to change the world through sharing? This was the theme of a recent event held at the House of Commons in Westminster, London, which resulted in a lively discussion with a diverse range of participants about some of the policy implications of the emerging sharing economy. 

The International Responsibility for Justice in Occupied Palestine

There can be no talk of peace in the Middle East so long as Israel is given political immunity, financial assistance and diplomatic support by other Western states. It is high time that the international community assumed responsibility for securing justice for the Palestinian people.

Imagining the Ultimate Global Sharing Day

The growing support for the sharing economy has the potential to change the way we understand and address the many challenges we face. But it is at the national and global level that sharing can have a truly transformative impact in relation to poverty, sustainability and world peace. 

Attention America: Welfare is Not a Dirty Word

Bravo to the magazine 'In These Times' for proudly hailing the importance of the welfare state in America. It is essential that more progressives follow their example in advocating sharing on a nationwide level - which is exactly what the universal provision of social welfare is all about.

Where is the Real Hope for Change in America?

What should we make of President Obama's election victory this week? Only one thing is for sure: the intense focus on the bombast of politicians is somewhat misplaced, and we still await the public to rise up in a concerted call for sharing and justice.
