After watching two very sickening videos on plastics (Video A, Video B)  in our oceans, I thought to myself, there must be a way to solve this problem. Well, how can we stop to produce so much rubbish and consume more products that are packaged in a sustainable way? Collaborative Consumption could be one very powerful answer (see video below) . Concerning our campaign: How do we increase „Collaborative Consumption“ between coworking spaces? Join our Facebook group to make it happen!!!

Rasheed22, Coworking Space in Cairo joined the „Waste becomes Resource“ Campaign on Facebook to make a point:“We are experimenting in our recently added groundfloor space with getting more or less nothing new. We’ve succeeded even with the toilet. Still missing are chairs, doorhandles, more desks, shelv…es, etc. No need to send from abroad – but feel free to mobilize your networks and get the mysterious connections working! Who knows, maybe someone knows someone who knows someone?! We want to show that there is enough out there to be put to use, again.“ Well, this is what „Waste becomes Resource“ is all about!!! Activate your Cairo-Connection to make it happen, for Rasheed22 and the coworking movement as a whole. To  join our campaign just click here.

In line with our „Waste becomes Resource“ Campaign we like to give our support to the following statement of currently about 300 economists: “ We are economists who oppose ideological cleansing in the economics profession. Equally we oppose political cleansing in the vital debate over the causes and consequences of our current economic crisis.“  „We support the efforts of the Occupy Wall Street movement across the country and across the globe to liberate the economy from the short-term greed of the rich and powerful one percent.“ „We oppose cynical and perverse attempts to misuse our police officers and public servants to expel advocates of the public good from our public spaces.“ „We extend our support to the vision of building an economy that works for the people, for the planet, and for the future, and we declare our solidarity with the Occupiers who are exercising our democratic right to demand economic and social justice.“
