Berlin, the biggest city and capital of Germany with 3,400,000 inhabitants, is a major centre in culture, politics, media and science. But the unemployment rate is above the national average. After the fall of the wall in 1989 new opportunities emerged for the city. But 1990s also saw the loss of many jobs in industry and increased social segregation. Since 1999, Berlin has tackled social segregation with a neighbourhood management scheme in more than 30 neighbourhoods.
Berlin's Local Support Group focuses on the Soldiner Strasse neighbourhood with 15000 inhabitants in the District of Mitte. The aim is to facilitate access to vocational training and jobs for young people from the neighbourhood.
