Research workshops

Between May 2020 and April 2021, the Building Connections team conducted three online workshops to explore the planning, design, governance, management and use of schools as community hubs. Each workshop involved 20-30 international stakeholders and experts including researchers, government representatives, school leaders, hub coordinators, planners, architects, health and human services providers, community groups, and a range of NGOs.
