Peerby & Konnektid are organising a Potluck Picnic at Amsterdam Roest city beach to celebrate the milestone of the English Peerby site, to connect the Dutchies with the many expats living in the Netherlands and to celebrate Global Sharing Day with a Big Lunch. On Global Sharing day there will be many similar initiatives all over the world in a world record attempt in simultaneous food sharing. Last but not Peerby & Konnektid want to share a lifestyle which is fun, good for your neighborhood, and helps our planet. Come and share lunch with your friends and neighbours on this beautiful city beach in Amsterdam.

In the spirit of their community sharing and building concept, Peerby & Konnektid are encouraging the picnic attendees to bring snacks and drinks along, ideally a specialty from their home countries. Picnic visitors are also encouraged to bring any blankets they can spare with them. At the Picnic itself everybody is invited to help knitting these blankets together and to leave a personal message on them. The goal is to create a constantly growing Peerby Picnic blanket, which will be used to spread the sharing spirit all over the world. Peerby members will also be able to borrow this Picnic blanket from the Peerby headquarter to use it for their own events.

Quotes
"“We believe that the success we’ve had to date with the Peerby site comes from the vision we share with our members: neighborhoods should be connected communities. The launch of the English site is crucial for us because we don’t just believe this is a Dutch phenomenon. We expect a lot of enthusiasm from the international community in the Netherlands as well.”" Daan Weddepohl, CEO and founder of Peerby.
