What We Do

Women Empowerment Training
Collaboration in offering solutions

We help local communities to develop and implement practical and cost effective sustainable development solutions. We believe that the institutional barriers that practitioners typically face are at least as important, and difficult, to overcome as the technical complexities. We work together with other stakeholders to ensure that the same is achievable in the community.    

Community Support
Community Covid-19 Support

HOYWIK believes that effective local action is vital for meeting the urgent global challenges of climate protection and sustainable development.  Stronger national policies and international agreements are critical as well, but local solutions are a necessary, and often underestimated, ingredient which needs to be tapped. We work together with other stakeholders to ensure that the same is achievable in the community.

Inclusivity for Growth

We believe that the institutional barriers that practitioners typically face are at least as important, and difficult, to overcome as the technical complexities.  Integration of economic, environmental and social goals and actions is at the heart of sustainable development, and yet few communities are able to achieve the much higher degrees of collaboration that is necessary to achieve truly integrated solutions.
