About the book:

Generation Share, published by Policy Press to celebrate Global Sharing Week, 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.
