At a first workshop of the research project City2Share, citizens of the Isarvorstadt district in Munich were able to share their anger about what bothers them in their district – and at the same time make suggestions for future improvements.
As the local weekly Münchner Wochenanzeiger reports, the group workshop brought out some feasible ideas. An outdoor gym and a trim trail, for example, could enhance the public squares in the quarter. Other citizens suggest a bookcase with borrowing facilities. Yet other citizens want to create road safety and noise protection.
For their efforts, the citizens receive an expense allowance of 20 euros per workshop. As the Wochenanzeiger reports, there are also other opportunities for participation on the Internet: citizens can submit their ideas via an online dialogue at www.beteiligung.city2share.de until 5 November. In addition, several group surveys with up to ten participants from different population groups are carried out for the accompanying scientific research.
