As a cooperative of two NGOs activating and integrating organisations from Bytom (Śląskie province), in our daily work we have observed the problem of low civic activity among the town’s residents. We also often witness arguments between inhabitants and local authorities. The above issues result from insufficient knowledge on available forms of initiatives and the lack of knowledge on the scope and reality of the Bytom commune as the body of local authority.
Within the project, we will address the above difficulties by organising a cycle of educational workshops devoted to the issue of the town’s competencies, with particular focus on potential involvement of town residences. These workshops will be attended by 20 Bytom inhabitants from various age groups. Together with gamification experts, participants will prepare an urban game for Bytom inhabitants. We will publish it then in a form allowing for incorporating it in the school curriculum.
