The Sharing Project


Ponder CEO, Chris Diplock, is a leader in Vancouver’s collaborative economy.  Founder of the Vancouver Tool Library and Lead Researcher with the Sharing Project, Chris is working with organizations in Vancouver to help develop the local collaborative economy.

The Sharing Project

The Sharing Project was an sixteen month research and engagement project that started in January of 2013. Our project involved interviews, focus groups, an open survey, a random panel survey and a community engagement tour (“The Sharing Tour”).

We released The Sharing Project report in October of 2013 and it can be found online at

Over the course of The Sharing Project work we have had the pleasure of –

engaging with thousands of people through presentations, meetings, media and online engagement.

We have had an amazing amount of media coverage throughout our research and the tour. This coverage has helped bring the sharing economy to peoples’ attention as well as helped get our report in peoples’ hands.

Share Vancouver

Chris Diplock is currently involved in a new initiative called Share Vancouver.  Share Vancouver is a collaboration between local sharing organizations and enthusiasts. Through public engagement and collaboration amongst sharing organizations and enthusiasts, Share Vancouver will encourage sharing behaviour, increase the influence of sharers and build capacity for sharing organizations.
