Sweet Water Foundation practises Regenerative Neighborhood Development, a creative and regenerative social justice method that creates safe and inspiring spaces and curates healthy, intergenerational communities that transform the ecology of so-called ‘blighted’ neighbourhoods.
The practice utilises a blend of urban agriculture, art, and education to transform vacant spaces and abandoned buildings into economically and ecologically productive and sustainable community assets that produce engaged youth, art, locally grown food, and affordable housing. It offers a solution-oriented response that pushes the boundaries of blight and sheds light on the collective consciousness by making a new lived reality possible.
At Forte Marghera, as a participant of Dangerous Liaisons, Sweet Water Foundation have built a meeting house for people to use and enjoy.
