We are eager to enter into the projects with similar aspirations. This time, together with EO ClimLab, we organize 24-hour workshops responding to the goal 13: Climate action. We would like particularly to support the challenges related to improving air quality in Warsaw. The team who will take on the challenges of this group and will be most interesting for us will be invited to develop the project in our space for one month” – explained Kasia Wojnar, Program Manager at Brain Embassy.
