MiFriendly Cities Journal 5: XXI century heroes – Social Enterprises and Social Innovations leading the way
In this Journal, UIA Expert Peter Wolkowinski shows “the incredible resilience of many of the MiFriendly Cities partners and participants".

They continue to find ways of responding to:

  • the challenges of isolation,
  • dealing with the unknown,
  • fighting for the rights of migrants and refugees, becoming in some instances even more efficient than before.

This is true for the Health Champions and Share My Language strands of the project, but even more so concerning social enterprises and social innovations, which this edition of the journal is going to concentrate on. The persons leading these initiatives, our XXI century heroes, are all from migrant or refugee backgrounds, but are now firmly connected to West Midlands culture. Through their daily work, these change makers show just how involved you can become in your local community and the incredible added value that follows when diversity is embraced.”
