The shareable life has gained solid footing Down Under, so much so that it warrants its own channel here on Shareable. It’s likely no coincidence that Australia is so active in the sharing space as the home of Rachel Botsman, author of What’s Mine is Yours: The Rise of Collaborative Consumption, which did so much to raise awareness of the sharing trend. Australia is also home to many promising sharing startups and initiatives including Eat With Me, OpenShed, and Garage Sale Trail.
To celebrate the milestone, local leaders of the sharing economy will come together on November 14 for an evening of connection, conversation, and action at Hub Melbourne (who graciously donated the event space). The launch will coincide with and celebrate Global Sharing Day.
