Project: Urban Gardening Peace Project, Wuppertal
UrbanA fellow Burcu Eke-Schneider is co-founder of the the Wuppertal Peace Garden. This so-called 'Avantgardenist' project is a prime example of a diverse community taking hands-on responsibility in their urban context. It brings together thinkers and volunteers who we want to be part of collective search for paradigms and pathways towards a world that is sustainable, equitable and just.
The community garden invites different cultures and actors to establish a peaceful relationship with each other and at the same time to resume the dialogue with nature. The vision of this scientific project is to create a nature-based conflict transformation model while simultaneously facilitating intercultural knowledge exchange processes.
