Personal change and coworking evolution does not happen by itself.

Social and Economic Change requires „personal and social transformation to go hand in hand“. You are more successful, when you decide to join with others to walk this path of (coworking) evolution . The great Mahatma Gandhi puts it as follows:“ If we could change ourselves, the tendencies in the world would also change. As a man changes his own nature, so does the attitude of the world change towards him. … We need not wait to see what others do.“ (If you happen to have registered Gandhi´s words differently check this interesting New York Times article about „We need to be the change we wish to see in the world.“)

When at the beginning of last year, I wrote „Coworking Evolution: Coworking goes ‚Free Coworking‚“ many people had already started some form of free coworking offer for themselves and with others. Jelly Coworking or Free Coworking offers of all kinds were in operation (Sponsorship – Free Trials – Meet ups – In Exchange of Social Capital etc.) but these offers were not visible to everyone (including myself) and there was no context or forum to bring them all together.

To change this we started a campaign at the beginning of 2012:  ‚Free Coworking‘, a forum and network that incorporates now three important elements:
1) The Free Coworking Map 2) The Open International CoWorking Calendar 3) Daily Free Coworking News

Now it is possible to go on a business trip, a holiday or somewhere abroad and you will find over 450 places in the world where you will be able to network and work for free!

The map has grown by 769% in the last 40 weeks with currently 469 entries. But there is still so much to do.  Even today not everyone is aware of these great offers and the great opportunities that go along with them. Just to give an example. Yesterdays  article on Shareable: (Sorry Beth, just an oversight I hope ;-) (Need a Place To Work? Here are 9 Coworking Apps That Can Help), no mention of this wonderful free offer, the Free Coworking Map!

To bring you up to date, here some new examples we just added to the Free Coworking Map:
