The project aimed to foster social cohesion among both refugees and host communities in Türkiye and Hungary through the development of a mobile app and city-based game. By transforming the city into a playground and encouraging the free use of public and community spaces, it tries to promote active participation and enhance the well-being of youth.

The game facilitates interaction between local youth and marginalized groups like asylum seekers and immigrants. It contributes to the participation in city life through cultural, artistic, and historical exploration, and provides structured opportunities for physical meetings.
Last but not least, the project offered local authorities the chance better to understand the needs and issues of migrant communities and contribute to the creation of a more inclusive and welcoming environment In Budapest and Istanbul, where engagement between migrant communities and local municipalities is relatively limited.
