International Coworking Day 9 August 2014

‘International Coworking Day’ is tomorrow 9 August 2014. The event is now in its 4th year and marks the anniversary of when Brad Neuberg ‘officially’ started ‘coworking’ in 2005.

The date also coincides with ‘Coworking Week’, which is variously noted as 2-9 August or 4-9 August 2014.

Events for International #CoworkingDay and Coworking Week are scattered around the globe. See the logo for the day below which I found from @citizenspace on Twitter.

There’s a Meetup group as well. The ‘coworkingweek’ meetup allows anyone with an account on www.meetup.com to create a subgroup within www.meetup.com/coworkingweek/ to create an event for Coworking Week.

I ‘opened’ a ‘coworking week meetup’ group for Melbourne earlier today. I only just found out about this Meetup group earlier in the day, so it’s perhaps a little late to do much about it this year, maybe next year Melbourne could have some kind of ‘Fesival of Coworking’ during the corresponding week in 2015.

Action Step
So if you are interested in also being part of a Melbourne or even National (Australian) coworking week ‘Festival of Coworking’, please join the Melbourne group on Meetup.com/coworkingweek/.

Here’s to great coworking.
