We will provide civic education to inhabitants of the Czerwonak commune belonging to the Poznań Metropolis. According to the ‘Social District. Ranking of Social Activities in Local Governments’ report our district considerably lags behind other rural districts in the country in this respect, which can be confirmed by the fact that very few inhabitants participate in consultations devoted to topics that concern them.
Wishing to address this problem, we would like to focus on two areas of activity: educating seniors and children on civil rights and on educating local social leaders how to make their initiatives more effective and satisfactory. With seniors in mind, we will publish the ‘Guide for Active Seniors’, will prepare training on social participation, and Oxford debates, as well as prospective workshops – the latter will be attended not only by seniors but also by youngest inhabitants of the commune. Attendees will come up with ideas for local solutions satisfying their needs. The Community Council will help us invite all commune residents to joint two consultation processes with the use of geo-questionnaires. We will combine them with an educational panel during which we will describe civic engagement tools and ways in which inhabitants can shape their neighbourhood. These meetings will enable us to jointly generate ideas for district growth and local space development.
