Urban Gardening Peace Project
The Urban Gardening Peace Project is located on the grounds of the Alevi community of Wuppertal (AKM) and works closely with several actors in the hearth of the city. 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 the pilot project is to create in the sacred place a nature-based conflict transformation model while facilitating intercultural knowledge exchange processes. Thus, this creative "Ecological Peace-building" project has a cultural and social dimension as well as a scientific approach to reduce the power of the drivers of injustice in the context of sustainable urban development.As a pilot study it has been realized in Wuppertal in order to generate an in-depth, multi-faceted understanding of a complex issue in a real-life laboratory context. It was not only set up to analyse root-cause problems but also sought to propose culturally sensitive solutions by the help of eco-education.
It is an important intervention for preventing violence, it works with inclusiveness to help enable emergence of a common understanding in three main ways:
First, it can support inclusive processes of just urban transition that respect diversity of cultural backgrounds and ethnicity.
Second, it can promote more environmentally friendly behaviour and attitudes among participants.
Third, it can convey new meanings of “collective struggle for a common future” in different languages, cultures and sacred places.
✌️🌱☮️We are a group of peace thinkers..
We cordially invite everyone to participate in our peace project, regardless of age, gender, political views or origin. Previous knowledge of gardening or peace work is not required.
Strengthening of women
We would like to encourage women in particular to participate in the project and further strengthen their social significance. It is important to us to include their creativity and their great collective knowledge about plants and seeds, medicinal properties etc.
We are determined to create and maintain peace. The framework we have created should be understood as a protected space. We do not tolerate defamation or violence towards other people, neither in language nor in behaviour.
In our peace project we feel obliged to contribute to more climate justice in an urban environment. We would like to contribute to the reflection on a more sustainable and just life and to a more conscious behaviour.
The Peace Garden is intended to contribute to the greatest possible biodiversity in urban areas. Nature is a network of the most diverse forms of life, everything is connected with everything else. With the Peace Garden, we respect the dependence of humans on nature as part of nature.
