Generation Share takes readers on a journey around the world to meet the inspiring people who are building a Sharing Economy.

Through inspiring photography, social commentary and interviews with change-makers worldwide, the book will bring to life the phenomenon that has the potential to cause the most significant shift in society since the Industrial Revolution. It showcases incredible stories demonstrating the power of sharing; from the young social entrepreneur in Mumbai who is educating slum-based girls, to a Makers collective in Barcelona who are reimagining cities, using technology to upcycle precious resources.

The book is a collaboration between global Sharing Economy expert and speaker Benita Matofska and Sharing Economy photographer Sophie Sheinwald.

Industry Reviews

"A must read for change makers everywhere who seek lasting, systemic change with multiple benefits. This timely, inspirational read shows through tangible examples how sharing can bring people together, meet basic needs, and reduce waste. Nothing could be more relevant given the mounting social, economic, and environmental crises." Neal Gorenflo, Co-founder and Executive Director of Shareable and Executive editor, Sharing Cities: Activating the Urban Commons
"A glorious and glossy, around-the-world look at the global sharing economy from the viewpoints of a diverse and inspiring group of young change makers. Printed on sustainable paper, a percentage of each copy sold helps fund planting a tree and educating a slum girl in India. It educates, motivates and even agitates individuals and corporations into joining the sharing community in a beautiful way. Buy it. Read it. Love it. Share it." DJ Paulette
"We have a saying in my house: 'Dream big and anything is possible'. The extraordinary people in this book aren't just dreaming but doing - against the odds to make their community and the world a better place. Illuminating, humbling and awe-inspiring." Samantha Simmonds, TV news presenter and journalist
"In a world filled with "stuff" this inspirational book showcases how we can share knowledge, skills and resources for the benefit of all. " Oliver Heath, designer

"This new book is a celebration of the sharing economy, and there are three things that make it particularly impressive... First, it focuses specifically on the people... (Secondly) It's full of wonderful photographs that land this abstract idea of a sharing economy in real situations, contexts and needs... (Third) Everyone gets a voice here, and the book is packed with inspiring but ordinary people explaining their motivations for doing what they do..." The Earthbound Report
