Social Innovation changes face of the cities

I wanted to share with you observations by David Barrie. He reviews examples of social innovation that changes the face of the city. There are similar things in Lithuania worth mentioning as well.


For example arts and culture ( Street Music Day ) come out into the public, the street becomes part of life. Social relations are changing: strangers meet to share emotions and activities together (bubbler ), some second hand stuff ( fleamarket at teachers’ house), their skills and experience ( Eco Wave at Gedimino 9), ideas ( Pecha Kucha ) or just simply talk to each other. Artists and other active people are changing their communities inside Vilnius as well: starting in Uzupis adn ending with Newtown . Coworking in our Hub is part of this movement as well.

First week of Hub Vilnius is over and people keep coming!

Welcome to the first coworking center in Lithuania – Hub Vilnius. We have been open since October 29, 2010.

You can join our Facebook group, become our member or take part in our events and activities. Don’t hesitate to come and visit us!

The Hub is only a vehicle for being a more effective worker and a more active contributor to our city. Space is a tool to create conditions for cooperation and partnership among our members.

Coworking at the Hub isn’t just for technology people. Our community is comprised of designers, developers, writers, artists, entrepreneurs, scientists, educators, startups, NGOs, marketers, social activists, game developers, and more. The common thread is this: we want to lead social innovation and we’re happier and more productive together than alone.
