Bremen’s emblematic Robinsbalje centre, opened in 2010, connects education with social inclusion and urban regeneration. With financial support from the European Regional Development Fund, a multitude of public and non-governmental institutions have joined forces in new premises to give the Robinsbalje neighbourhood and its residents better prospects for the future. The ‘learning neighbourhood’ is an expression of strong local efforts to make a difference.

Executive summary

Since 2010, Bremen (Germany) has had its first ‘learning neighbourhood’. At its heart, the emblematic Robinsbalje centre connects education with social inclusion and urban regeneration. With financial support of €1 million from the European Regional Development Fund, a multitude of public and non-governmental institutions have joined forces in new premises to give the Robinsbalje neighbourhood and its residents better prospects for the future. With the Robinsbalje project, Europe 2020 and its objective of socially inclusive growth become tangible for local communities. The ‘learning neighbourhood’ is an expression of strong local efforts to make a difference.

In the brand-new Robinsbalje building, local communities can benefit from a broad range of services ranging from health care and social matters to job counselling and support for migrant families. By rethinking the traditional role of a school and widening the understanding of education, the Robinsbalje centre has become a unique, open ‘learning neighbourhood centre’.

The centre, located in one of Bremen’s disadvantaged neighbourhoods, gives a long-awaited impetus to urban rehabilitation in the area. Investing in education and social inclusion – both by building a new home for social and educational institutions and by creating a sustainable network amongst these institutions – has changed the neighbourhood’s situation, face and future.

To make the project happen, cooperation between the city’s administrative units was crucial. For many of those involved, this co-operation was new (and difficult) ground, but led to important synergies and new impulses for future projects. Looking beyond the borders of ‘business as usual’ also contributed to raising mutual understanding among colleagues and to widening the horizons of those involved.
