Get Living London gets behind ShareEast

October 5, 2017

Get Living London is supporting ShareEast – an exciting new initiative which brings together neighbours to share skills and pool knowledge. Aimed at those who value both their time and their community, the scheme encourages members to exchange sessions with each other, using a currency which measures hours spent on activities.

With ShareEast, one hour is worth one ‘Echo’. Building a website for someone could gain you the chance to learn Italian; or you could paint a wall to get to see a play. Just about anything can be shared – from picking up shopping, teaching jewellery making, Zumba classes and basic web design to gardening or mending a bike.

Now supported by Get Living London, membership is open to those aged 18 and over in and around East Village, Stratford and Hackney Wick.

A series of free taster sessions have been set up in East Village to launch the initiative. For more information, or to sign up, click here
