Büro für Nachbarschaftliche Netzwerke (NN)

The Neighbourhood Network has existed since 2018 exploring the immediate social environment in and within the water retention basin in Berlin-Kreuzberg. The office is constantly working towards the building of a network of Berlin based groups and initiatives that are interested in being active at the Floating University. The office offers two moments throughout the year to connect and network with the neighborhood: Sprechstunde “open-for-all” – a tour followed up by an hour of conversation – and the Seasonal Weekends an invitation to experience the seasonal diversity on site. 

Sprechstunde “offen für alles”
Every 10th of the month, a tour of the basin will take place at 2:30 pm, with two members of Floating e.V. at a time sharing the history of the basin with interested parties. This tour is as diverse as the experience, knowledge and perspective of the members of the association. Afterwards, the “open-for-all” Sprechstunde will take place from 3 to 5 pm: A day of exchange between the immediate neighbor:ing and floating, open to wishes, suggestions, criticism and visions, in the basin, at the basin and around the basin.

Seasonal Weekend
A quarterly event format to connect and network with the neighborhood. Neighborhood as a concept is and will be thought about and reflected upon more broadly here. The program on these two days is implemented in cooperation with various actors from the neighborhood and designed according to the season. In particular, this should make it possible to consciously perceive the seasonal diversity of the flora and fauna around the basin and to experience the very different possibilities of use that go hand in hand with this.
