Cultivating Community Through Social Architecture with Simone Yael

The social architecture concept is an important urban planning approach to making everyone feel included, from deprived communities to affluent neighborhoods. It influences minority groups, social systems, digital spaces (like media and applications), and so much more. The ultimate goal is to design environments that encourage a desired range of social behaviors to surface and reveal the needs that are not always represented.

If you're ready to stir things up, join Simone Yael in taking actionable steps towards community change through the lens of social architecture, entrepreneurship and community development. You'll work together to throw your stick into the fire in order to break down what is happening and to rebuild a better now.

Workshop Topics

- What is Social Architecture?

- Who are we? What is our Mission? What is our Manifesto?
