Us in our neighborhood

Wir im Quartier (WiQ) -  نحن في الحي  - Nous dans le quartier


Why WiQ?
Together we shape our neighborhood!


The best solutions evolve when several social groups pull together. WiQ (short for ’Wir im Quartier’ which can be translated to ’Us in our neighborhood‘) is a civic network in which people from different backgrounds participate in creating their neighborhood according to their interests and take responsibility for it.

People identify social challenges or problems in their environment. Some already contribute initial ideas for solutions and receive the best possible support from people from the civil society, administration and politics in the further development and implementation of their ideas.

And this is how it works:

Good solutions need all of us: craftsmen, students, people from the offices, at the cash register, from industry, school and kindergarten, people without work, people with disabilities, etc..
