5 World’s Coolest Co-Working Spaces of 2016

Students of the world unite, there’s a new trend in town and it’s going to make your life much easier. As if studying wasn’t hard enough, most study spaces are designed in a way to alienate an individual from the outside world and, of course, other people. Well, recently a new trend has emerged among students and co-workers called co-working and its primary goal is to create a shared working environment for people to conduct their work together, rather than apart. Studies have shown that this type of engagement actually holds many benefits and can boost people’s productivity levels, make them more efficient and effective in doing their work, but also improve creativity in the working area and create a sense of community.

Many countries worldwide have already accepted this practice and we present to you the 5 most awesome co-working spaces from this year:
