Coworking Spain conference, the major Spanish event related to coworking, is to take place next April 24-25 at Las Naves coworking space. During 2 days the best Spanish experts of coworking and sharing economy will present the latest trends about working, economical and social new models.

Coworking is a global phenomenon, 5.780 coworking spaces are registered worldwide and 2.430 in Europe.

Spain is acknowledged as one of the most influential countries in this new way of working. Nowadays, more than 7.000 freelancers and startups in Spain are working under the coworking roof.

This year’s conference main topic will be: The Sharing City. The Sharing City is a collaboration based on new way of organizing cities. Citiziens collaborate with each other, sharing spaces, services, goods and infrastructures. Objective: to turn urban centers into sustainable cities overcoming the bad conditions of urban centers, such as price inflation unemployment and pollution. The citizen’s collective intelligence is used to share knowledge through digital and physical platforms.

As a key component of the Sharing Economy, the coworking movement is also becoming one of the engines of the Sharing City.

The number of coworking spaces exceeds hundred in some cities

With time, coworking is growing as the global mega-trend ones expected it would once become.

In some cities, in 2014, the coworking population exceeds a hundred. And far from slowing down, the unfolding of the coworking landscape seems to be accelerating. In some metropoles, coworking is covering the whole urban map.

Have a look at some of those megapoles. We could have added many more examples.

London

London is getting closer to a 100 coworking spaces threshold according to CoworkingLondon. The figures are confirmed, in a way, by Gocowo, another Londonese coworking spaces directory.

Paris

According to La Fonderie-IDF, the organizing partner of the Coworking Europe conference in 2012, 66 coworking spaces are in operation, nowadays, in the French capital city. The digital agency of Paris-Ile de France is confident that Paris will soon be in a position to claim more than 100 operating coworking spaces.

Berlin

One of the bedrock of Coworking in Europe, Berlin has seen coworking spaces blossoming everywhere in the city. Dozens are now open and running, confirms Projektzukunft Berlin.

Barcelona

Spain being the number 1 coworking country in Europe, it’s no accident that Barcelona is nowadays the metropole with the highest coworking spaces density in the world. A big deal of the more than 100 spaces Barcelona has now pop on this map produced by Coworking Spain.

Madrid

As for Barcelona, Madrid seems to be experiencing a coworking boom which should have, no doubt, an impact on the unfolding entrepreneurial and creative energy of the city (source of the map : Coworking Spain).

New York City

Outside Europe, New York City is obviously another unmissable world coworking hotspot. According to WNYC, dozens of coworking spaces are in operation all across the megapole. Behind those walls, the future of the 21st century digital/sustainable/distributed economy is taking shape.

Looking at the Global Coworking Map or any other regularly updated Coworking directory that are now available online, it’s becoming harder to find a coworking space-free area outside low human density territories like Amazonia, Sahara or Siberia.

Coworking is covering up more and more regions and cities all around the globe. Although Europe and North America are still ahead of the move, Asia, Africa or, mostly, Latin America, are experiencing what could become soon a boom of coworking spaces in their respective urban centers.

No more New York, Berlin, London or Madrid as the only coworking friendly cities on the planet. Time has come to add Reykjavik, Yangon, Yerevan, Addis Ababa or even Peshawar to the list.

With four new coworking spaces opening up, on average, every day somewhere on the planet, no surprise to see Armenia, Cameroon, Guatemala, Pakistan and more widely embracing the coworking move forward.

Some of these initiatives are supported by foreign outsiders (investor or NGO’s). Others are home grown.

For most of them, a coworking space is the bedrock on which a local breed of digital globally connected entrepreneurs can and will germinate, paving the way for the companies and skilled jobs of tomorrow. Many operate as local embassies of the shared economy on the local level, as regional platform to host standardized inspiring format such as TEDx, Startup Weekend and connect, by doing so, to the rest of the world.

Almost all of them want to support the development of an ecosystem of entrepreneurs and freelancers, likewise in Europe or in North America.
