    How are creative hubs, and collaborative workspaces in general, oriented with the achievement of sustainable development goals?
    Which are the solutions to reduce the environmental impact of workspaces and convey responsible messages and behaviors to the final users?

    Within the Twin Hubs European exchange programme, On/Off (Parma, Italy) and FOR (Timisoara, Romania), in collaboration with ART-ER, Grow Lab and Ibo Italia, organize the workshop “Creative Hubs for Sustainability”, a working day to share ideas and good practices towards reducing the environmental impact of shared workspaces.

    During the workshop, the attendees will work in team on the joint elaboration of the “Sustainable Hub Paper”, a strategic document that will contain the best practices and advice for managing shared workspaces from a sustainable perspective.
    The event is free and open to all, aimed in particular at managers and users of shared workspaces (coworking, incubators, technopoles, business centre, studios, etc.), sustainability and community managers, students, researchers and people interested in development sustainability and workspace management.
