Coworking facts and tips

For sure, many people heard, at least once, about this term – “coworking”. Anyway, whether you know what it means or you’re not really familiar with the term, I think some facts about it are interesting and they worth being mentioned. The word “coworking” (without hyphen) appeared in 2005, defined by Brad Neuberg, a programmer who opened the first space of this sort, in San Francisco. By today, there are thousands of coworking spaces or hubs around the world, and even if they differ sometimes, in terms of organization, design, community or size, their main characteristic is that they are a logical reaction to the classic, formal offices, where strict rules, routine and monotonous atmosphere can restrain productivity, creativity and the flow of ideas.

The range of people who choose to work within those spaces is wide, from freelancers and entrepreneurs to corporate workers. Also, some coworking spaces gather people from various fields, while others are destined for people coming from the same field. A coworking space usually has large, shared offices, where people can interact with each other, have round tables and collaborate, but also individual offices, for those who prefer privacy, as well as conference rooms, shared kitchens or the so-called “coffices”. However, some coworking spaces want to be more than that, so they became hubs or social startups, building an entire community around them, thus stimulating their members by constantly organizing events, conferences or leisure activities.

How to make our coworking space eco-friendly

Nowadays coworking spaces are becoming more and more popular and a lot of young people are being inspired by the opportunity to work in such an office. The perks are many: unlimited fast internet, personal desk, office with air conditioning, printers, coffee machine and last but not least, people who you can interact with at help each other with creative ideas. Image from: Instagram / Author: yanoliveira_interiores Withal pollution around the world is still a huge problem so we must think more about the environment while we innovate our coworking office. Here are a few ideas that might be helpful to anyone who is willing to help the planet while doing the best from their job: Indoor bike parking We all know that bicycles are not causing any pollution in contrast to cars, buses and other vehicles, so we can inspire our coworkers to avoid their automobiles or public transport and ride a bike.

It’s vital for our future existence due to the fact that trees are creating the oxygen we breathe. With that being said, what we can do about it is to use less paper. How? – by recycling paper, using already used sheets for internal paperwork, using cloud drives and shared files, memos etc.  Did you know that 30% of the printed papers in the office are never being collected which automatically becomes a waste? Now we can collect paper and use it again in the office. Also, when we set daily tasks or have some kind of written reminder we can put a whiteboard in the office and write there, instead of printing it on a piece of paper of leaving paper memos. Recycling Putting 3 different big recycle bins in the office would inspire people to separate their junk.
