Located at Rua dos Combatentes da Grande Guerra, nº 6, in the historic center of Lagos, CoLagos has 20 workplaces and offers five types of subscription plans, with a wide range of associated services, among which are highlights: 24/7 access, meeting space, lounge area and a fully equipped pantry. In addition, on weekdays, a customer service will be available, as well as administrative support.
The new coworking space has a series of complementary activities, opening it up to the community for a multidisciplinary drive and having as strategic pillars activities aimed at entrepreneurship, culture, society, and training.
This municipal coworking space was born from “proposal 16” of the 2017 Participatory Budget of the Municipality of Lagos, which was based on a creation space for young people and shared workshops in the Youth Space, also known as Espaço Jovem. The idea was based on the remodeling of some old rooms at the Gil Eanes School into a collaborative space for young people, a shared work space, a multipurpose room and a shared workshop with some digital fabrication tools. This proposal was proposed by Catarina Moita and Pedro Semiano.
