Becoming Neighbours

How to foster a sense of belonging in a neighbourhood community

Oerlikon, a quarter in Zurich is hosting 250 refugees in the "Halle 9" Asylum Center. Just across the street is a small neighbourhood called Neudorf-Siedlung. However, despite their proximity, there is little social cohesion. We set out to find ways for the local residents to meet and get to know each other. A shared garden was a possible answer. For this project we developed a toolkit that can be extended to other scenarios.
