On the 12th and 13th of September, we attended the, two days, workshop prepared for the ‘’Neighborhoods union’’ (Mahalleler birliği).
The aim of this workshop, organized by ‘’the One Hope Association’’ (1 Umut derneği) volunteers team, was to educate the ‘’Neighborhoods Union’’ members to read master plans and documents relative to urban planning issues. This training will provide them a better understanding of the projects targeting their living spaces and give them better means to develop counterproposals.
