    9 Amazing Things Just Happened In The Sharing Economy Movement

    When we started helping 166 volunteer hosts plan Dinner With Peers, we didn't know what to expect. The results were beyond amazing:

    1. Strangers became friends.

    Especially in Turkey, sharing movement is in its early stage and we need to establish a community with events like this dinner. Most of the participants saw each other for the first time. - Istanbul

    2. New groups formed and committed to meet again.

    People got along really well and I could feel how we develop this feeling of community in few hours. At the end of the dinner we agreed to repeat this every 2 months. - Madrid

    3. Mashed potatoes became a work of art ...

    4. ... and leftover cookies became a symbol of the movement.

    After dinner we were happy because we had a feeling that something special is happening in our lives. We decided to support Peers in every new step. - Zagreb

    5. Conversations ran late into the night.
