We are directing our project to people in three neighborhoods of Łódź: Polesie, Śródmieście, and Widzew. According to the research conducted in 2016, individuals living in those neighborhoods face many social issues and are characterized by low civic engagement. Our experience suggests that the problem is related to low self-esteem, lack of relationship building skills and a sense of agency over one’s environment.

In response to the problem, we will organize a series of workshops on personal development combined with civic education. The workshops will be conducted in the spirit of Nonviolent Communication (NVC), and we will invite other, already established NGOs operating in Łódź, to participate as well. Forty-eight individuals living in the listed neighborhoods will be invited to participate in our meetings. We will divide them into six groups. The participants will come up with their original ideas and will receive support in implementing them back home. The project will conclude with a presentation and evaluation of the implemented initiatives.
