CENTROS DE BARRIO- OAXACA is a project created around participation. The people of Las Azucenas meet, organise and participate in the building of streets, public spaces and developing services, and have achieved the co-construction of a garden for Las Azucenas. They thought up ways to reuse materials, such as eco-bricks, which are PET bottles filled with clean, dry, non-recyclable and safe waste material.
