We Wood Initiative
“Together we can make a stronger impact”
Urban Network in Collaboration with Meds workshop and Shift, a social innovation hub, has realized the need for urgent action to help our community and the many families whose homes were damaged. After the explosion large quantities of scrap wood were thrown away during the cleanup. Our aim is to make the ultimate usage of these materials in order to up-cycle and reuse them for the benefit of the local community.
Tackling the waste management issue, our proposal is divided into two phases: a short-term project, an emergency response that consists of urgently installing entrance doors and windows in the damaged buildings; and a long-term project, envisioning a sustainable urban regeneration for the whole neighborhood.
