How Must Metabolism and Inclusivity Be Developped and Connected?
The City of Biel intends to develop, densify and, where necessary, upgrade the quality of the neighbourhood. The local housing cooperatives have formulated their goals within the scope of a participatory process to which they were invited by the City of Biel and Europan, thus laying the foundation stones for a dynamic, future-oriented urban neighbourhood. There is great potential to strengthen the residents’ identification with their own neighbourhood. All involved already recognise the careful use of resources as fundamental.
