Micro-participation in Enschede neighborhoods
Shame Hertzdahl

Howcan we stimulate participation at the smallest scale level , learning from examples at home and abroad, and start with that? That is the question for this challenge, in line with the 'Good governance' program of the Municipality of Enschede. In that program, the 'interaction' between residents and the municipality is central in the development of the city. This involves various forms of strengthening participation in districts and neighborhoods. The neighborhood budget (or on a larger scale 'initiative power') is a good example of this. We are curious what kind of interventions are conceivable on an even smaller scale, within a radius of a few hundred meters around your house.

Cool block is an example of 'micro participation' in Enschede's partner city Palo Alto. That example prompted this question, which we have offered to address within the Honors Program at the University of Twente in the first semester of 20/21.
