Can you help with the most sustainable book launch of all time?

Generation Share takes readers on a journey around the globe to meet the people who are changing and saving lives by building a Sharing Economy.

Through stunning photography, social commentary and interviews with 200 change-makers, Generation Share showcases extraordinary stories demonstrating the power of Sharing. From the woman transforming the lives of slum girls in India, to the UK entrepreneur who has started a food sharing revolution; you’ll discover the creators of a life-saving human milk bank, a trust cafe and a fashion library who are changing the world.

A collaboration between speaker, social innovator and global Sharing Economy expert, Benita Matofska, and photographer, Sophie Sheinwald, Generation Share brings to life the phenomenon causing the most significant shift in society since the Industrial Revolution.

Generation Share author, Benita Matofska

Printed sustainably from waste materials, each copy of Generation Share sold will help fund planting a tree and educating a slum-based girl in India (one of Generation Share projects, Aarti Naik’s Sakhi School for Girls), helping to share the love and inspire more sharing with every purchase.

The launch of the book coincides with Global Sharing Week (June 16th-22nd) which Benita set up with her social enterprise, The People Who Share.

The author and publisher are aiming for the book tour to be as sustainable and environmentally friendly as possible.  To encourage sharing, Benita and Sophie are aiming to Liftshare to as much of the book tour as possible – and they need your help!
