Joinville Hub

Joinville Hub is a platform for shapers to develop their skills, raise awareness and promote positive impact in the local community. Our focus is on our members' areas of interests, and for that we have different activities and projects that range from sustainability to local action and citizenship.


Current Projects and Activities: Catarina do Bem (Good Catarina) this project emerged during the COVID-19 pandemic, due to the need for attention in other segments of the health area indirectly affected by the pandemic, bringing information to the public, and raising funds and donors to areas dependent on donation, such as blood banks, human milk banks, among others. The first edition was in June 2021, and the project promoted a three-day blood donation campaign in partnership with the blood bank in our city. In the second edition, in August 2021, Catarina do Bem promoted an educational series over five days with video lessons on our social media about breastfeeding and the main difficulties faced by the surveyed mothers, in partnership with the human milk bank, as well as encouragement for the donation of human milk. We also carried out, throughout the month, a campaign on our social media requesting the donation of glass jars (since these are sterilized and reused in milk banks to store the donated milk). The campaign raised more than 1000 glass jars, which were distributed in the city's milk bank and the surplus was donated to two more public milk banks in neighboring cities.


Davos Future Talks - Construindo nosso futuro (Building our future) is a Podcast created by Hub Joinville members. The idea came after Davos Lab to continue the dialogues, giving a voice to young people in our city and spreading our ideas through social media, in order to reach a greater number of people. In addition to the topics covered in the Davos lab, we intend to address topics such as SDG agendas, as we perceive the local demand and global need for dialogue.


Moreover:- Partnership with the project "Tá de vermelho?"(Are You in red?) fighting menstrual poverty. - Revititalization of a room for children in the Panagua community (Joinville), transfoming it into a children's library, performad by incoming shapers in partnership with Rotaract Joinville. - Computerization and expansion of the "Biblioteca de Muro" (wall library), an existing project in Joinville, performad by incoming shapers. 


Completed Projects and Activities: #ShapingFashion is a global project created by the Amsterdam hub in 2017, and Joinville joined in 2018, in which Livia (2020-2021 Curator) was 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, with around 40 people impacted. The main theme is sustainability and ethical fashion, in the context of fashion design students and organizations.

#CipódeJabuti - Amazon riverine stories. Multiple Brazilian Hubs worked on this virtual reality mini documentary entirely filmed in the Amazon rainforest. We have promoted a viewing party during a Sustainability class in Faculdade Senac Jaraguá do Sul 2019, in which 25 college students learned and reflected upon the minidoc.

Collection of school supplies: donating drives, either to raise school supplies for an institution focused on vulnerable kids and orphans, to raise clothing donations for local charities, and to raise money for hygiene and food supplies to local recycling organizations.

Conversa MultiGeração (Multigeneration Talk): in which 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 sixth edition of this event was on October/2021, addressing youth employability.  

Moreover: - Participation in the 2018 ODS itinerant truck event, hosting 2 workshops for the 8th ODS (Decent work and economic growth).- An ongoing partnership with Joinville's Zero Waste week (usually in October).   - Participation in Brazil's Global Shapers national meetings.
