Culture Without Borders

Context

Refugee camps have the door open, however the lack of mobility and resources of refuges, and the remote and unfavorable location of the camp sites, convert the door to be rather closed, and refugee camps approache more to a detention camp.

For people living in refugee camps, the capacity of circulation outside the camp not only allows their mobility, but a greater degree of autonomy and the potential integration in the territory by having easy access to basic social needs and services provided in the near urban areas.

Project Description

OCCycling is a multidisciplinary project that includes the planning and execution of a shared mobility system with bikes and provides a training program in bicycle mechanics for young people and adults of the refugee population. That way, it seeks the empowerment of the main beneficiary groups and the feeling of belonging or ownership of the project through the repair of bicycles, and also participating in the coordination of the rental system.

Thank you to everyone who makes this project possible
