“Citizen Spaces Announces Global Coworking Week 2014 celebrating 9 years of coworking, collaboration, and the sharing economy”
In 2005 an independent worker in California conceived of a different way of working; he envisioned a place where independent workers could come together, collaborate and reap the rewards of community, increased productivity and creativity. That worker was Brad Neuberg and the word he used to describe his vision was coworking, is also a cofounder of Citizen Space, arguably the world’s first Coworking Space. On August 9th, approximately 5000 coworking spaces around the world will celebrate Neuberg’s vision as part of International Coworking Day.
Last year (2013) Citizen Spaces started celebrating for an entire week instead of just one day, this year we are encouraging space owners all over the world to join us in celebrating 9 years of coworking, collaboration, and the shared economy!
Coworking Week will begin August 2, 2014, and end on International Coworking Day, August 9, 2014, if you are interested in participating; we have provided a guide to jump start your participation below.
