Join us for the Generation Share World Changemakers Digital Launch Tour: Focus on Morocco, an online event worth sharing, bringing together changemakers and communities from across the world to connect and celebrate Morocco’s social changemakers and create a global Map of Hope.

This participatory event will be hosted by co-creators of Generation Share, international speaker and changemaker Benita Matofska and photographer with purpose Sophie Sheinwald. You’ll hear about the game-changing book that showcases the inspiring stories of changemakers worldwide and meet some of the pioneers in Morocco who are transforming lives. Our panel of pioneers chaired by Yossef Ben-Meir of the High Atlas Foundation will bring stories of hope from the frontline. From Amina El Hajjami, with the House of Life Project and Imagine, a women’s empowerment initiative, to Leila Lebbar with her ukulele, founder of Crescendo Music who teaches, entertains and inspires the next generation,. We’ll be inspired by Mouhcine Camel, the innovator behind the popular English Street Class, transforming lives through language skills, Larbi Arbaoui of the brilliant Moroccan Library Project, plus travel writer and changemaker Lucas Peters of Journey Beyond Travel. You’ll have the chance to connect with other changemakers, put your project on the global Map of Hope and join the Generation Share Changemaker movement. This inspiring event is just the beacon of hope we need for 2021, demonstrating that to change the world, we need to change the narrative. You’ll discover how during times of crisis changemakers are building back better and leveraging the power of sharing to change lives and you’ll have the chance to make a difference.

All attendees will also receive an exclusive 50% discount code for Generation Share, the book that was voted ‘best isolation read for a positive future’ by Forbes.

About the book: 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.
