London Coworking Assembly

Monthly London Meet Up's

We're a small and very diverse group of self-organised people who have been in and around London Coworking for the last decade. 

  • Our members run some of the most established independent coworking spaces in London. 
  • We are committed to building a fair and thriving coworking industry and movement. 
  • If you are looking for golf days, personalised number plates and long boozy lunches this is not the space for you. 
  • Not a London Coworking business? This group is for London based operations, but if you are in London to visit please get in touch we'd love to welcome you to an event.  

Coworking Values Podcast

The Podcast Of The Coworking Assembly

Welcome to the podcast of the European Coworking Assembly. 

Every week we connect with your friends from around the European coworking community to chat about the coworking values. 

The values are Community, Openness, Collaboration, Accessibility, Sustainability.

How do have they seen these values change over time, how do this work in their business, and what would they like to see going forward?

inclusion Diversity & Accessibility In Coworking

Events and Workshops

We are a mission to further the understanding of inclusion diversity and accessibility in the coworking industry.

At every conference we've attended we've joined with others looking to start this conversation.

In 2019 we collaborated with Cobot and Nexudus to on an event in London.
After this, we ran a workshop at Mainyard Studios in Hackney, London. Local youth took part to share how the coworking industry communicates to them.
Watch out for stories on our blog as we build this topic.

The #lovematija Fund

with EFWeek, Ouishare and Coworkaholic

The #lovematija fund is a project of  EFWeek, Ouishare, and Coworkahlic. The intention is to create a fund in Matija's memory,  to provide a financial resource to freelancers who find themselves in financial distress due to unforeseen medical emergencies.

PR for Independent Spaces

One of the reasons the media is about the valuation of coworking and not its values is simply that larger companies have media and PR firms, and people standing ready to be interviewed on matters related to Coworking.

Independent spaces have that too, only we are badly organized and not in contact with media figures or accessible to them. 

So we are working together to realize this end.

Corp Coworking Brokers


We have been approached by companies which place folks in coworking spaces on behalf of corporate players, and we understand that a constant pain point is that the clients they work for often prefer independent coworking spaces but they are not able to meet that request.

They have asked us as the ECA to help them solve this problem and we are working on ways to do that.

Coworking Gift Exchange


The annual global coworking gift exchange is back for its third year.  

Once you’re a part of the exchange, you are matched to another member or workspace operator who’s taking part.

You send something cute (costing no more than €7/$7/£7) to your match, and get a gift from another member who got matched to you.

Want to collaborate?

We're always interested in working with breakout, paradigm-shifting or people-empowering projects.
