The issue of making use of vacant facilities remains largely unexplored among Warsaw residents. Non-governmental organizations have been dealing with the topic of giving life to vacant facilities for several years now.
Bęc Zmiana Foundation has created an app “Warsaw’s Vacancies” (vacantwarsaw.wordpress.com), owing to which the map of vacant facilities can be drafted collectively - potentially by each resident of the capital city. The city authorities have also become interested in the problem of bringing deserted facilities back to the city: they have begun to rent municipal utility facilities under preferential conditions and outside the tendering process to non-governmental organizations, social cooperatives and other entities performing public benefit activities.
