“WawaShare – sharing in the city” is a website gathering projects that enable residents to share various resources. The town hall praises that more and more projects are appearing on the platform. Everyone can share with others both food, unused books, clothes or tools, as well as their own knowledge or skills.

As part of the WawaShare project, meetings are organized that allow for the exchange of good practices in the field of building a shared Warsaw. Last Thursday, at the Targowa Creativity Center, the leaders of the Saska Kępa and Wspólnik District talked with representatives of the capital’s districts on how to create and manage such places. Representatives of external companies that were involved in their creation shared their experiences and declared further cooperation.

Zero waste philosophy

We want the map of Warsaw initiatives related to the sharing economy and the zero waste philosophy to constantly expand and serve the residents of our city. The organization of meetings during which we can share experiences in the field of creating a shared Warsaw builds our know-how. Thanks to this, we can better respond to the needs of Varsovianssays Karolina Zdrodowska, Director, Coordinator for Entrepreneurship and Social Dialogue at the Capital City Hall, quoted in the communiqué. And adds: We encourage you to cooperate and submit projects not only by residents, but also by companies operating in the capital. We want to reach as many recipients as possible with information about the advantages of a shared city.

Many interesting initiatives regarding sharing are reported by residents as part of the participatory budget. This is how snitch shops, some eateries, and garage sales, which are very popular, were created.

Good quality second hand items

Projects implemented as part of WawaShare also create a space for cooperation between the local government and external partners. With the participation of companies such as Castorama, Ikea, Ingka and Allegro, two thriving companies were created: Dzielnia Saska Kępa at ul. Berezyńska 27 and Wspólnik in the Wola Park shopping center. Residents can find there good quality second-hand items, share surpluses of edible food or find out how our everyday decisions and consumer choices affect the climate and the environment. They can also organize events that serve the local community.
