Essen an den Bäumen!
An assembly is a group of members of an organization who meet periodically to make decisions about a specific area or scope of the organization.
Assemblies hold meetings, some are private and some are open. If they are open, it is possible to participate in them (for example: attending if the capacity allows it, adding points to the agenda, or commenting on the proposals and decisions taken by this organ).
Examples: A general assembly (which meets once a year to define the organisation's main lines of action as well as its executive bodies by vote), an equality advisory council (which meets every two months to make proposals on how to improve gender relations in the organisation), an evaluation commission (which meets every month to monitor a process) or a guarantee body (which collects incidents, abuses or proposals to improve decision-making procedures) are all examples of assemblies.
The round benches around the trees on the Röschibachplatz should get a central table, so that one can sit on the benches opposite each other and enjoy e.g. an aperitif. The tables are not screwed down, but removable, and when they are not needed, they can be stored in the neighborhood.The tables are built together in a workshop: Interested parties create the inserts for the round benches with the support of an expert during a construction day.
The material is procured in advance and comes from reuse wherever possible (e.g. wooden boards from Offcut). The conception of the inserts as well as the course of the construction day is also discussed in advance with the specialist.
The required machines are obtained from the specialist (circular saw). Small machines such as hand drills are brought by the participants themselves.
In the first phase, tables will be added to 4 of the 6 trees.
The project will be inaugurated at the end of the construction day with a small neighborhood aperitif.
Here you can find the concept of the project.
This project was granted a part of the neighborhood budget by the population of Wipkingen as part of the «Quartieridee Wipkingen». You can find the original idea here.
Meret & Florentin are looking forward to your active support when it comes to building the table (or tables?) on site.
