24 June 2023
The representatives of Cocon Merging are organizing a public meeting on Saturday June 24 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. to inform neighbors and friends of the progress of the site.
The opportunity also for us to invite you to participate in the construction of the yurt which will take place soon.
Why insist on this element of the project?
The yurt will be the common area open to site residents and neighbors. It will allow access to activities for all, artistic performances, etc. Everything is to be written, and that is why we want to make this adventure a common story.In this sense, if from the beginning of the construction of the yurt, people wish to contribute, it will be a success.
We would love to have you with us. Don't forget to bring a picnic, and something to drink !

View of the place where the pilot will be implemented
Public meeting on November 18, 2022 organized by UJML, the Foyer Notre Dame des sans Abris and the town hall of the 8th arrondissement of Lyon to present the Co-Con project (for co-construction). The "Cocon Rue Bataille" is one of the 3 pilot sites of "MERGING". One of the innovative dimensions of this program lies in the participation of all in the development of spaces and the design of activities on the site.
The objective of the meeting was to present the project to the inhabitants to develop the project together.
A dozen portraits are exhibited until 18th March 2022 on the railings of the Manufacture des Tabacs in order to highlight the Passagers and social workers of the Foyer Notre-Dame des Sans-Abri who act daily to get out and fight against precariousness and exclusion.
