Knowledge Groups

OuiShare started as a circle of people debating about the potential of the collaborative economy in living rooms and a Facebook group in 2011. Since all of these individuals had different specific interests related to societal transformation, many self-organised online discussion groups emerged about specific sub-topics, such as food systems, energy, mobility, retail, trust, and more.

Check out the list of existing groups below and send a message to the knowledge group admin if you would like to join one!
