Citizens Connect Neighborhood: Social Living Labs in NRW

Project Information

Topic: Neighbourhood Development and the Digital Shift

The aim of the project is to promote an experimental landscape for active participation processes and to support neighborhoods and bottom-up initiatives in dealing with digitalization.
Initiatives situated in North Rhine-Westphalia were called upon to apply to participate in the project – 12 were selected in the end and have now, since October 2016, participated in the ongoing model project to support the neighborhood development team with digitization. We evaluate and help implementing the respective goals of the individual neighborhood initiatives involved and do so with tailored tools, communication instruments, platforms and participatory methods – to develop these (further) in an iterative process and to accompany the initiatives with scientific study.
