As the Metropolitan Municipality, we are honored to create areas of activity that will enable Ankara, which is a university city, to use all its competence in this sense, and to offer these to the service of the sector and universities. It is clear that especially this project will contribute to the promotion of Ankara. Because it is of great importance to develop a sense of belonging to the city, especially among our youth, within the framework of such programs.”

We wanted people to walk around here by collecting objects," he said.
