This bank holiday weekend is your opportunity to join the international Slow Travel movement; the extra day will afford you the luxury of taking your time getting to your favourite holiday spot but there's more to Slow Travel than that. The term does not, in fact, necessarily indicate that you'll be longer arriving.
Today is National Sharing Day. Major players in this emerging sector and forward-thinking citizens across the UK are getting together to spread the word about the economic transformation we are part of. It's the official launch day of a new non-profit organisation called The People Who Share, supporting the growth of the sharing economy in Britain.
