This month...

Our festival season Grand Finale!

Summer is at an end, and in two weeks we wrap up our week-after-week festival season. EarthDance (thanks Kelley and Rachel!) broke records yet again with well over 600 people aiming to share rides! Along with SolFest these two events are the beginning of a new stage in SpaceShare's efforts: when people without cars have no troubles getting rides, and our next goal is to get drivers to leave their cars behind.

Read more about the changing dynamics of festival carpooling.

Upcoming Festivals

Next: KVMR's Celtic Festival and World Vegetarian Day with the Organic Athlete Conference are all September 30 - October 1, followed by the Hoes Down at Full Belly Farm the next weekend.

Get involved: SpaceShare is struggling with success: our current team of volunteers can't spend every weekend at festivals, and we don't have a big enough team to be at three in two weekends. We're especially looking for one or two people to be serious volunteers (or even earn a little) at festival after festival next season. Want to spend your summer working for the environment by day, then celebrating at all the big West Coast festivals? Learning leadership skills, able to train volunteers? Join us this weekend and learn how to run an exhibit booth!

Conference Season

We'll be changing tracks after the Hoes Down, switching focus for the winter to work with conferences. About 90% of the folks on this newsletter signed up through festivals, so our newsletter may get shorter, but we expect many changes before next spring:

  • Re-designing our website.
  • Re-designing the search/match tools.
  • Growing the green economy pages.
  • Hopefully creating our first college and church/synagogue/mosque carpool systems.

As always, we have some amazing volunteer, internship and paid partnership roles where you really can make a difference!
