Project Description

Comer Junto emerged as collaborative design exercise using Dragon Dreaming from a consortium of institutions – called Social Hub . The Social Hub was born in 2011 from the Social Hub’s vision to empower communities and projects through active collaboration, co-creation, as well as a strong partnership and synergy between several institutions whose mission is to promote the welfare and development of children, young people, families and the community .The consortium involves the following institutions Pressley Ridge , ACAF, Junior Achievement Portugal , Dentista do Bem, Benfica Foundation, Escola de Judo Nuno Delgado , Transformers . ASA, Local Authority representatives ( Amadora City Council and Parish Council Mina D’ Água), a group of schools called Miguel Torga and community representatives. Social Hub aims to give an effective and efficient response   to the real needs of the Community. It was through the identification and sharing of the strengths and weaknesses of each institution that we have become stronger individually and as group – a win win solution. The consortium has developed an analysis of community needs that were not being met by any of the projects on the ground, and identified the following issues: a) unemployment / financial problems; b) family instability (family ties in crisis); and c) unhealthy diet.

This project has been shortlisted for a international award
