Joinville Hub is a platform for shapers to develop their skills, raise awareness and create connections. Our focus is on our members' areas of interests, and for that we have different projects that range from sustainability to local action and citizenship.
#ShapingFashion is a global project created by the Amsterdam hub in 2017, and Joinville joined in 2018, with Livia (our vice-curator) being the regional committee representative for Latin America. In this project we developed a pilot of an event in cooperation with a local university, which hosted sessions with invited local entrepreneurs, workshops and a clothing swap. The main theme is sustainability and ethical fashion, in the context of fashion design students and organizations.We started 2019 with a donating drive to raise school supplies for an institution focused on vulnerable kids and orphans. Then we had #ShapingFashion during Fashion Revolution week in April. In June some of our members attended Brazil's Global Shapers national meeting in Manaus. In July we participated in the ODS itinerant truck event, hosting 2 workshops for the 8th ODS - Decent work and economic growth.
Our oldest project is Conversa MultiGeração (Multigeneration Talk), which started in 2016. We promote a conversation between people from different generations on the same topic, ranging from entrepreneurship, the future of jobs and education. On this event we invite representatives from universities, organizations, corporations and the media. The fifth edition of this event was on August/2019, addressing mental health.For the rest of the year of 2019 we have at least 3 more projects in the pipeline, all in the theme of sustainability. We have an ongoing project with Joinville's Zero Waste week (October). We will also participate in World Clean up day in September 21st and we are planning a project with local schools to raise awareness about the amazon forest.
