09 Aug The Truth About International Coworking Day*
*and why you should care.
A Global Movement
Before you assume that International Coworking Day is a self-congratulatory round of high-fives among coworking space operators, consider this: coworking is a global movement comprised of a culturally diverse, urban-and-not-urban, five-generation-wide workforce. How could a group of opportunistic capitalists possibly conjure up something that grand?
The truth is: they couldn’t.
The truth is: the coworking movement is you.
A Shift In Assumptions
Coworking is a shift in values, a shift in perspectives, a shift in assumptions about what we can have and, fundamentally, what we deserve out of a workspace. This is a fast-moving tide of individuals, teams, and, now, corporations who are shaking the foundations of a 9-to-5 model that is nearly a century old.
“Coworking is a global movement comprised of a culturally diverse, urban-and-not-urban, five-generation-wide workforce.”
By the simple act of reading this with an open mind, you are contributing to the far-reaching manifesto that demands the right, for everyone, to mold their own professional surroundings and build custom-fit models of productivity. Today, we celebrate that right and every moment we spend, together, furthering the cause.
“[We] demand the right, for everyone, to mold their own professional surroundings and build custom-fit models of productivity.”
To our whole global community on this ordinary (but not ordinary) day: Happy Coworking (with Love)
