Description: The Green Africa Directory is hosting a Cape Town #MapJam to crowdsource any sharing economy initiatives in Cape Town for inclusion on a global map that will be a resource for anyone on the Sharing Economy. The Sharing Cities Network which is organising the global #MapJam is part of the Shareable network.
The Cape Town #MapJam will bring people together to support ‘Sharing for Resilience’ by connecting the dots and mapping grassroots sharing projects, cooperatives, community resources, and the commons.
“A Map Jam is an easy to organize event where a small, dedicated group of people get together for a few hours to map as many shared resources, cooperatives and sharing services in their city or town as possible,” said Mira Luna, Organizing Director at Shareable. “Like a musical jam, it should be fun, social, and jammers should find a groove as they work.”
