We need to work together to build a better world for all. Organisations participating in Green Action Week plan campaigns that focus on practical ways to bring about sustainable consumption while delivering benefits for the common good, focusing on relationships, illustrating equality and respect for all, showing care for people and planet and working to bring about economic and social justice.
These are all characteristics of a Sharing Community, which is united in common visions related to strong community and cooperation networks, sustainable and safe food and farming systems, equitable access to the economy and resources, clean environments, recognition of all knowledge systems, and more. Sharing communities offers an exploration of an alternative to the primary economic models in existence, presenting different approaches to exchange. When people collaborate and share goods and services, communities become stronger, and transformative change builds momentum. Stronger communities generate shared social benefits that also reduce the negative impact we have on the planet.
A sharing community grows ideas, passions, and motivation which leads to momentum.
