Junges Quartier City District
A pilot project, unique in Germany, for local trainees and young people with a refugee background, has been running on the former Siemens site since 2015. By combing apartments and education, young adults not only have an attractive living space, but also educational opportunities, enabling them to grow independently as they plan for their future working lives. The 'Junges Quartier' has children’s and youth facilities such as the 'SchlaU school' and a social centre, in which further training, workshops, and also gaming nights and sports tournaments take place. At this SchlaU school, around 320 young refugees are led towards graduation from middle school, complying fully with Bavarian educational standards. The SchlaU school has a canteen, a cafeteria and hobby and music rooms, where young people can meet and exchange ideas.
