Robinsbalje Neighbourhood Education Centre

new building

The neighbourhood education centre is a network based around Robinsbalje elementary school and Robinsbalje childcare centre which aims to improve the educational opportunities for children, young people and their parents via an enhanced leisure and advisory service for children and families.
The intention is to develop learning neighbourhoods to strengthen the residential areas and neighbourhoods. Since the infrastructure available in the schools is not in use in the evenings, at weekends or during the holidays, it makes sense to examine how it can contribute to this development.
Here, the aim is a neighbourhood-based networking of schools with childcare facilities, youth support and other advisory and assistance services to improve the lives and boost the educational opportunities of children and young people, particularly from socially disadvantaged families. This process also helps to make it easier to reconcile work and family life.

Promoting the neighbourhood initiatives

The promotion of neighbourhood initiatives is a structural policy intended to strengthen local commerce, to boost the economic output and to reinforce the inner cohesion of the various neighbourhoods. The aim is to improve the economic and social situation in the neighbourhoods.

The ERDF programme will support the following neighbourhood initiatives in 2009-2011: Gröpelinger Marketing e. V., Kultur vor Ort, the marketing of the Neustadt neighbourhood via WIR-Neustadt-Bremen e. V., and the marketing of the Hemelingen neighbourhood via Wir Hemelinger e.V. A decision to extend the work of the Neighbourhood Initiatives by a further year, i.e. until the end of 2012, has already been taken.

In addition to PR work, the initiatives will engage in various campaigns and put on both minor and major neighbourhood-related events. Examples include the following: Gröpelinger Sommer alternating with Weserwege and Feuerspuren in Gröpelingen; the commercial show in Hemelingen; or Neustadt bewegt dich, Summer Sounds, Piepe-Leuchten and Adventskalender in Neustadt.

The neighbourhood initiatives provide information about their activities and events via their websites:
