Potluck Picnic on Global Sharing Day














We have something to celebrate with you!

What? On the 2nd of June we will organize a Potluck Picnic at Roest. Come and share lunch with your friends and neighbours on this beautiful city beach in Amsterdam.

Why? We want to celebrate you! For making sharing a lifestyle which is fun, good for your neighborhood, and makes our planet a wonderful place. Additionally, Peerby is launching an English version of the website. Last but not least, 2 June is Global Sharing Day!

Bonus! Together, we will be knitting a huge Picnic Blanket on the spot, we will be sharing our food (please BYO), there will be DJs, storytellers, knitting & storytelling workshops, and our first annual Neighborhood Hero Awards!

In order to make this picnic the most fun possible:
- We need YOU to be there, and please invite your (Dutch or international) friends to join the event.

- Bring a local specialty from Holland or your own country along. We will of course also provide some specialties ourselves. Can’t cook? “Beter & leuk” will help you out. They will be selling food at a booth onsite, and they will definitely tickle your palate with delicious home cooked food.

- Have any spare blankets you would be willing to donate? Share them! We would love you to bring them along to the event! After the event, we will have the Potluck Picnic blanket at our office, so that Peerby & Konnektid members can borrow it from us and use it for their own events! Your name will be embroidered on your piece of the communal blanket (if you want), so you will be a permanent part of the neighborhood picnic experience! The Picnic blanket will be constantly enlarged at future events and will travel to festivals all over europe in order to spread the Sharing spirit.

Want to be involved, have questions or remarks, or need more information?
We are happy to help you out. Just let us know.

See you on Global Sharing Day!
