Tutaj Project was established by the citizens of the 13th district to stop the construction of a new block with several hundreds of flats on the site of a closed kindergarten. However the democratic participation is weak in the district, there is a growing need for community activities and creative programs says the association's survey. At the same time the municipality is not opened to the needs of the community and the organization would like to channel the citizen's needs into the decision making. To reach these goals the proejct organizors want to create a community space and a community garden. They also want to take part in the municipality's decision making process through initiating personal meetings, public data requests and community planning.
Our aim is the creation of a community space, community garden on the site, to preserve local natural values, and to develop local community through encouraging active participation. The target groups of the project are the group of local habitants (approximately 10 thousand people), as well as local civil organizations, authorities and council.
Our main activites include development of advocacy skills, community building, event organization and the creation of the garden itself. Through the realization of the project, they aim to gain wide societal support for our goals, and to provide an example for creating gardens on both urban and national level.
