Resources for collaboration in the face of COVID-19
20 March 2020 - Impact Hub Basel
We can still COLLABORATE – To #InspireAndCreateChange has been our mantra since the very beginning here at Impact Hub Basel, and this will not change, even in difficult times. Because one thing is certain, we are #StrongerTogether.

To help us all stay healthy, productive and positive we have compiled a list for everyone in our wider community, ranging from e-collaboration tools to webinars, online classes and tech insights, free online meditations, concerts and local resources to find out how you can help people who are affected around you. 

Here are some tips and platforms you might want to check out!
