The Greater Neighborhood (as defined in 2017)
This manifesto, imperfect, conceived of the hopes, the sufferings and the incomprehension of those who instilled it.
Les Grands Voisins were born at Saint-Vincent-de-Paul Hospital in the 14th arrondissement in Paris, between Port Royale and the Catacombs. They come from flaws in the concrete and in public policies. They are open, inclusive, inclusive and at the service of everyone’s welcome. They believe in bridges between utopia and reality.
Who are we?
We, like any good neighbor, do not always agree and defend:
- Parity in governance,
- Collective resolution in good understanding,
- Free expression,
- Artistic exercise,
- Lifelong learning,
- The promotion of any form of work.
We call for places of social mix that allow the enhancement sharing of the knowledge and know-how of each and every one. We call for places of social diversity that promote listening and the possibilities of meeting, conditions for the relaxation of the fear of the other. We call for places of social mix that fight against « self-esteem », isolation and the reduction of individuals to cases.
We need places and time to set a precedent, to be able to invent other forms of society in harmony with concentrates. We all have to give and to receive.
To Les Grands Voisins, we live, work, sleep, eat, we care for, buy, cry, laugh, and all this in all languages. Inclusion and exclusion go hand in hand. The other is a chance.
