H2T is a participatory project in the 2º Torrão neighbourhood, a fisherman’s neighbourhood with an informal structure.
Many of the 500 families who live here built their own home and live by their own rules. The Municipality does not have a strong influence in this divided community. To tackle some of the issues the neighbourhood is struggling with, a group of volunteers initiated the urban intervention project with people from the neighbourhood and built several vegetable gardens, working with materials found in the street.
It takes just 18 minutes of your time to watch this wonderful film by Fabio Petronilli about a sucessful intervention in a marginalized and disadvantaged neighbourhood in Lisbon.
