THE HISTORY OF COWORKING
The term “Coworking” already appears in 17th century when Religios-Leader proclaim 1629 that we are “Coworkers of the higher realm”. However, the Coworking movement in today’s sense startet in 2005 when digital Nomad Brad Neuburg started the first Coworking Space to work and share ideas together. 2007 marks the beginning of the coworking movement in Switzerland, when Citizen Space, the first Coworking Space, was founded. The Coworking Switzerland Association was founded on 17 March 2015 in Zurich. 12 Members signed up that day in the Impact Hub Zurich. Since then a lot has happened and the crowed got bigger. The movement is dynamic and will not stand still.
