Facing an influx of new immigrants and refugees, the "Egg 2030 - Shaping Together" event aimed to engage citizens in deliberation on how to successfully integrate this new population into the village community of Egg, Germany.
Problems and Purpose
With an influx of refugees, the question arose as to how to successfully integrate the Neu-Egger into a village community, which is only just finding itself due to the strong growth of the last few years. The professionally organized and accompanied event "Egg 2030 - Shaping Together" aimed to address these questions together with the population.
In supporting this project, the "Integration Culture Foundation want[ed] to support the local civil society engagement and show that the population can contribute to a positive change in their living environment through voluntary engagement." 
Background History and Context
With a population of 760, Egg is the smallest district of Constance, but has grown rapidly since 2000 by more than 50%. Since May 2017, 5% of the population has been made up of around 40-50 refugees who have been living in follow-up accommodation in Egg. 
Organizing, Supporting, and Funding Entities
