Sharing.Lab is a non-profit organisation based in Copenhagen. We are a network of thinkers and doers empowering communities in a digital age.
OUR MISSION IS TO STRENGTHEN AND EMPOWER COMMUNITIES, SUPPORT THE COMMON SPACE MOVEMENT AND HELP OTHER ACTORS IN THE FIELD
We explore best practices and learn from our network’s experiences.
We experiment with new ways of working and share this knowledge for others to build from. We collaborate with and consult actors and communities in the field of co-living, co-working and co-creation. We spread knowledge and contribute to the design and development of stronger and more resilient communities, as well as more and better common spaces.
Sharing.Lab was founded as a non profit organisation by social entrepreneur Peter Just. Originally, Sharing.Lab was a think tank exploring the dynamics of the sharing economy. Today, the scope of our work is broader, as we focus on the social dimensions of urban and territorial resilience. Furthermore, adding a DO part to the THINK tank, has transformed Sharing.Lab into a hands-on expertise tank, that both provides thought leadership and action oriented projects, keeping the common good as an overall purpose
WE ARE IN PERMANENT BETA
We constantly develop our methods and sharpen our knowledge by studying and experimenting, but most importantly, we learn through developing and expanding our network.
WE ARE IMPACT DRIVEN
At the beginning of each project, we define the values we seek to create together with our partners and clients. Throughout the project we then regularly reassess our methods and our approach in order to meet or update our goals.
WE COMBINE LONG TERM THINKING WITH WEAK SIGNALS
Rather than trying to foresee the future, we think it is important to read the emerging present and collectively envision a desirable future.
WE THINK OUR FUTURE IS IN ALL OUR HANDS
We believe that power and responsibility should be shared, but we also believe in leadership and finding the right fit for the task, so that we all contribute in a purposeful way.
