INTEGRA Filder e.V. is a non-profit association that does integration work by and for people with and without a migration history. We are involved in the areas of ecology, environmental and climate protection, among other things. The "StadtGoesFuture-Culthäusle" project aims to enable all residents to participate in the sustainable development of their city. Together we want to develop and build a sustainable multifunctional house as a role model.

Introduction
INTEGRA Filder e.V. is a non-profit association that has long been committed to the equal participation of all people in society with its intercultural team and volunteers (Germany, Turkey, Croatia, Ghana, Gambia, France, Syria, Iraq, Ethiopia). The focus is on educational work for children, young people and adults in theory and practice. There are educational opportunities in the sectors of language, culture, education, health, empowerment, social participation, ecology, climate and environmental protection and art. INTEGRA cooperates in a large network with partners, organizations and associations of different orientations. One of our sustainable projects is "Stadt goes future-intercultural and sustainable urban development." The offer is aimed at all residents of our city. We want to develop cities together in a culturally, socially, ecologically and architecturally sustainable way. At the first workshop in April 2021, the most important goal for all participants was to create a central, green and sustainable place in the city where people can meet, enjoy their free time and design the place together. We want to create this meeting point in the ecologically designed garden next to our office. In order to be able to use it all year round, we urgently need a sustainable, extraordinary garden shed that we want to build together. We want it to become a role model for other citizens.

Impact
1. Societal aspect: People of different social milieus and origins shape their city together-> cooperation on equal terms, dismantling of prejudices / racism 2. Social participation: People who hardly have the opportunity to get involved in society can do so in this project. 3. Identification with the place of origin: if you can help shape your place of residence, you will feel comfortable and take responsibility. 4. Health and well-being: Especially people / families who have little living space and no garden / balcony are dependent on public green spaces / gardens in the vicinity in order to be in the fresh air / in nature, to relax, to be with other people and to be able to meet others. 5. Sustainable urban design and quality of life -> a climate-friendly, sustainable city needs ecologically valuable green / natural spaces and sustainably planned and constructed buildings (e.g. regional or recycled materials). 6. Role model -> the garden and the house should serve as models for others in order to encourage them to act sustainably as well 7. Feasibility: the building should be manufactured so cheaply that it is possible for many people to build it themselves 8. Knowledge transfer-> people from different social milieus and origin are involved in the project. Everyone can contribute to it with her and his (cultural) knowledge and implement the project in her/his home country. 8. Multifunctionality: the house is a meeting point, place of education, information point, sales stand (for products from the garden), model for sustainable building.

Where are we now
INTEGRA does not charge membership fees so that everyone has the opportunity to participate. Our annual budget is only around 7,000 euros for all activities. Our assets are us and our creative ideas - the INTEGRA team, volunteers and partners. Together we form an active group with a hodgepodge of skills and knowledge - from the doctor's assistant and ethnologist, the journalist, the teacher and the business administrator to the garden and landscape architect and the architect, (almost) everything is included. We share a passion for voluntary work and the goal of making living spaces and living environments sustainable.
An indication of our team’s capacity:
20% funding already raised
100% expertise already found
10% materials / equipment already found
100% builders already found
Finance: € 9,000
We want to develop our city in a culturally diverse and socially and architecturally sustainable way. The "Culthäusle" is intended to complement the garden, which has been designed according to ecological criteria, with high-quality architecture using sustainable, regional materials. The concept works permanently and flexibly. It is adapted to people's needs. The house is designed to be multifunctional:
1. Year-round use 2. Meeting point for encounters, celebrations, etc. 3. Place to stay in a pleasant and healthy atmosphere 4. Information point 5. Place of art and culture 6. Place of sale for products from the garden 7. Model function and inspiration for others to create sustainable places
