2 things of great importance started up recently in Barcelona:
HUB: We believe there is no shortage of good ideas to solve the issues of our time. But there is an acute lack of collaboration and support structures to help make them happen. The HUB was founded to address this need.

The metaproject of AureaSocial accompanies the creation and development of tools and resources that facilitate autonomy, empowerment (both personal and collective) and local self organisation. It’s a way to take control of our lives, enabling stable development of social projects organized from below.
We are people who believe that food, health, education, housing and political participation are basic fundamental rights that must be managed from the bottom to ensure that everyone has access.
We are organized in a decentralized working groups that carry out different tasks related and coordinated from the daily interactions and general assemblies.
We are working to ensure that self-organization in space and ensure continued participation open to possible activities, workshops and spaces that foster collective creativity and mutual support.
We are what we want to be. Are you joining us?

What is the Hub?
The HUB is about the power of innovation through collaboration.
We believe there is no shortage of good ideas to solve the issues of our time. But there is an acute lack of collaboration and support structures to help make them happen. The HUB was founded to address this need.
We set out to create spaces that combine the best of a trusted community, innovation lab, business incubator and the comforts of home.
Spaces with all the tools and trimmings needed to grow and develop innovative ventures for the world. But above all, spaces for meaningful encounters, exchange and inspiration, full of diverse people doing amazing things.
The idea has been spreading like wildfire and resulted in the emergence of a global movement. To date, there are 25+ open HUBs and many more in the making, from London to San Francisco, Johannesburg, Melbourne and Sao Paulo.
