About the Non-Profit Organisation

Bürgertreff "Gemeinsam im Kiez leben"

The citizens' meeting place "Gemeinsam im Kiez leben" is an institution of the Cooperative Mensch eG and an inclusive meeting place in Alt-Hohenschönhausen. Since October 2018, the citizens' meeting place has been sponsored by the district of Lichtenberg. As a social meeting place, it is dedicated to the elimination of barriers and the local implementation of the UN Disability Rights Convention. We want to promote inclusion in the neighbourhood. We have various open and inclusive offers in the Bürgertreff and in the Kiez. We have a large network in Lichtenberg and various cooperation partners, such as an inclusive boccia club. We also arrange cultural sponsorships between people with disabilities and/or low income and people interested in culture.
