The Social Hub is an interdisciplinary, socially engaged research and education center, aimed at advancing social change within academia and beyond. With social commitment at its core, it seeks to promote awareness and to advance the understanding of community-based knowledge within academia through direct engagement with communities. The knowledge developed through academic work is available to the diverse communities with which The Social Hub works.
The Technion, a world-class academic institution, is located in Haifa, the third largest city in Israel. To bolster the Technion’s commitment to the city and its residents, the Social Hub has been involved over the years in many projects in the city, in various frameworks and in different capacities. It has established contacts with NGOs and activists, worked with relevant municipal departments, and cooperated with professionals working in Haifa.
Advocacy work has strengthened local communities and turned their residents from passive dwellers into engaged urban citizens. It allows them to pursue their needs, understand the potential of their surroundings, and work effectively toward change. Some of the projects developed with local communities have been implemented or are in the process of being implemented.
