Event description

Description

We're proud to be welcoming international speaker and change-maker Benita Matofska to Manchester for the launch of her new book Generation Share. Benita will be talking about her extraordinary journey to meet the inspiring change-makers who are saving and transforming lives through the Sharing Economy. She will be joined by photographer with purpose and Generation Share co-creator, Sophie Sheinwald to discuss how this phenomenon is creating a thriving, sustainable and fair future for all.

About the book:

Generation Share takes readers on a journey around the globe to meet the people who are changing and saving lives by building a Sharing Economy. Through stunning photography, social commentary and interviews with 200 change-makers, Generation Share showcases extraordinary stories demonstrating the power of Sharing. From the woman transforming the lives of slum girls in India, to the UK entrepreneur who has started a food sharing revolution; you'll discover the creators of a life-saving human milk bank, a trust cafe and a fashion library who are changing the world.

A collaboration between speaker, change-maker and global Sharing Economy expert Benita Matofska and photographer Sophie Sheinwald, Generation Share brings to life the phenomenon causing the most significant shift in society since the Industrial Revolution. Printed sustainably from waste materials and compostable, each copy of Generation Share sold will help educate a slum-based girl in India (one of the featured Generation Share projects, Aarti Naiks Sakhi School for Girls) and plant a tree, helping to share the love and inspire more sharing with every purchase.
