On November 17 and 18 the EFL Topic Group Social Domain (EFL) together with the Topic Group Social Intergration (Eurhonet) meet in Lyon. Hosting organisation is housing company Vilogia. 

Site Visit:

During the first day the group will visit two project sites of Vilogia in Lyon: ‘Lyon La Valloniere’ and ‘Lyon Confluence’. The project La Valloniere shows three independent buildings with murals in a coherent system.  The examples of social innoviation show a joint process of cooperation with tenants to create murals on existing buildings .The mural artists of Cité Creation help to give the neighbordhood a new face.

The three works of monumental mural design represent a coherent course while respecting the identity and history of the people of each building.


The second day (Friday 18 November) will have the form of a project workshop about housing and integration of migrants. Our EFL-member Ms Janina Kleist from EBZ in Bochum/Germany will introduce their European research project “Integration in Local Urban Neighbourhoods”.
