Norwich – The UK’s First Sharing City

With the recent success of being recognised as the UK’s first sharing city, Norwich is clearly doing all the right things to put our city and county on the map as a collaborative economy. We join other global cities such as New York, Barcelona, Athens, Dallas and Singapore. Supported by Norwich Business Improvement District (BID) and Norwich City Council, Norwich’s focus is six key areas as a sharing city are;

·         Economics Growth

·         Convenience and Efficiency

·         Sustainability

·         Digital Inclusion

·         Global Recognition

What is a sharing city? This whole movement has come about from the increased pressure on our worlds resources and the challenges we all face to maintain a thriving community with a decreasing impact on the environment. In many ways, we are returning to the traditional basic principle of 'sharing,' but with a 21st approach.

Norwich has a number of companies that work on sharing initiatives and are leading the way with their businesses, for example, Liftshare, Norwich Farmshare, and Inlet. The Chambers is really pleased to be a sharing partner. If you want to know more and celebrate Norwich’s success there is a conference coming up on Thursday 28th February 2019, come along and celebrate this great achievement.
