What our neighbourhood management does

Good social interaction is also part of living in a young neighbourhood. However, stable neighbourhoods and successful communities do not develop on their own: they are created by encounters, exchange, and participation and rely on getting involved. 

As the Quartiersmanagement HafenCity (Neighbourhood Management Association), we want to contribute to this!
