A unique experience, designed for Genevans to get the most out of living in a city and cultivating a new integrative communal space together.
From this summer to 2024, the transitional urbanism site will be launched as the ‘Jardin des Nations’ (‘Garden of Nations’). The location, which was previously inaccessible, is at the corner of Route des Morillions and rue Michelle Nicod in Geneva, behind the International Labour Office.
The garden will be the first of its kind in Switzerland, and will include, market gardens, a refreshment room, leisure areas, exchange workshops and a cultural space, which will create exciting links between the international community and Genevans. This new temporary living space will delineate the shape of our new world: more sustainable, more responsible, more inclusive and more collaborative. It will also be a strong indicator of a return to a more balanced and harmonious way of life in a changing world: a world in which we have to ‘tend to our gardens better’, in both literal and figurative senses of the term.
