greenfest-logoShare your thoughts with IPS’s New Economy Maryland Director David Hart and other speakers about what’s happening in your backyard and how you can become active in a new sharing movement.

This Greenfest panel, “Building Sustainable Communities Through the Sharing Economy” is bringing together people and nonprofits working in Montgomery County and across the nation who want to bring back sharing and in the process strengthen communities and reduce environmental impacts.  Some of their activities include clothing swaps, Little Free Libraries, time banking, alternative gift registries, coworking spaces, worker cooperatives, and crowdfunding.
