National Coworking Day

Observed annually on the 5th of June, National Coworking Day is a holiday that attempts to bring people together at their place of employment in a spirit of cooperation and camaraderie in a coworking environment. Coworking is an arrangement where workers from different companies share one office space.

This not only allows the companies involved to save money, but it is also convenient because it allows them to use a common infrastructure, equipment, and utilities. This is a holiday that celebrates that arrangement and how it can be beneficial not only to the companies but to the employees as well.

The History Of National Coworking Day

This holiday was initially created by Brad Neuberg on August 9, 2005. He was a software engineer who owned Spiral Muse Coworking Group. He wrote a blog post about creative people coming together in the spirit of cooperation and talked about creating a cooperative space for entrepreneurs and freelancers.

Of course, he wasn’t the first person to come up with this idea. The concept actually goes back to the mid-1990s when Berlin hackers wanted to find a space where they could share information, but it wasn’t well known.

It would be until Neuberg’s blog post that this idea began to gain traction and that National Coworking Day would be created. Although the movement started slowly, it has gained some support over the past few years. Now, an increasing number of people are beginning to see the value in coworking, and as an indirect result, they see the value in National Coworking Day.
