IMBY or In My BackYard is a special tiny house project which encourages people across Europe to build tiny houses in back gardens as homes for refugeees. Here's how they describe it:
IMBY eases the integration process during the few months after the refugee status is obtained, providing home, togetherness, while preserving intimacy. IMBY develops a social mix principle : the project allows a house owner to host someone with a financial and social position more unstable than his/her own. Above all, by being incorporated within the existing urban fabric, the tiny-house fights urban sprawl and exclusion towards outskirts.
