There are fourteen thousand people originating from over a hundred nations residing in our most central of the districts of Düsseldorf. Addi-tionally around thirty thousand employees have their workplaces here. Sixty percent of our total population are from abroad or have their roots in another country. Year for year we also experience a rotation of about a third of our local residents. For these reasons and more the mainte-nance of a healthy neighbourly coexistence is more than necessary, it is essential. The sad alternatives we wish to avoid? The prospect of in-creasing anonymity, encapsulation and fragmentation.
On these premises we wish to present the potential our district has to offer. The creative protagonists, the clubs, the tradesmen and the va-ried international community members are offered a stage to present their culture and ideas, get to know one another to exchange concepts and plans.
