Goal

Let your participants take a look at their neighborhood and the social needs and wishes.

Steps

1. Introduction: The participants work at a map for their neighborhood. They may draw, sketch, or paint a map and put in all relevant information.

  • Where can you meet the target group of your planned activities? (in the example on the preceding page it was children)
  • Which public places are there in general?
  • Which places does the target group visit and use?
  • What are the needs of the target group?

2. Mapping: Let your participants place their ideas on the map.

3. Exchange/presentation: If needed, the different maps can be presented to each other or in a plenary session or in a gallery/market setting

Reflection

  • What aspects were quickly coming up?
  • What was different to your first assumptions?
  • What could be first ideas for an initiative?
  • Who else is important - as a) partner, b) source of information, c) supporter?
