INITIATIVE

In times of crisis, it can be hard to see the positive aspects.
But when we look back through history, we can see that crises have driven developments within society and given birth to new ideas. The core of the work being done with H22 is about shining a light on innovations in the city. Therefore we’ve compiled a collection of good examples of how people are cooperating, helping out, and finding smart solutions in these troubling times.
