Expected effects and result

The Social Fabriqs mission is to break socially unsustainable development patterns by contributing in 10 years to at least 100 neighborhoods becoming socially sustainable with the help of social investments and new forms of cooperation.

Planned approach and implementation

During the spring, a coalition process was carried out to mobilize interested actors. Over 50 actors from the private and public sector, civil society and academia participated here. The purpose was to explore the driving forces and reasons behind segregation and to formulate proposals for missions and activities that could be part of a program office. All material was documented. A survey to property owners, the content of which was also used as a basis in proposal.
