Friday August 9th marked a very special day in the world of coworking, it was International Coworking Day! On this day 14 years ago coworking as we know it was established by Software Engineer Brad Neuberg, and boy have we come a long way. For many coworking spaces International Coworking Day reminds us of the remarkable evolution and expansion of coworking spaces both locally and globally. This day also reminds us of the tremendous work coworking spaces have done to facilitate a sense of community and connection among individuals.
Here at ReSourceYYC we kicked International Coworking Day off with a Pizza Party for our members! Pizza and friends, what could be better right? That was definitely the atmosphere created as our members laughed, chatted and eat together. For us here at ReSourceYYC that’s what coworking is about, sharing good times with friends. To add to the spirit of International Coworking Day we had some friends from Work Nicer Coworking, and The Commons Calgary stop by to drop off some yummy treats. Talk about great coworking spirit!
Large or small we believe the work of all coworking spaces is immensely important and something to be celebrated. Happy International Coworking Day from all of us here at ReSourceYYC!
