We make Groningen together; our routines and daily actions create the city. What if we investigate these actions and connect them to our own green, circular, inclusive dream for our surroundings. In what kind of city do you want to live?!
We have the opportunity to ‘start right now’ and investigate, precisely because we don’t know exactly how to move towards an inclusive and circular society. How? By being a resident of Groningen who has the opportunity to search for her / his own power to undertake something new.
In this sense we can all become the innovators of our inevitably desired inclusive future. It requires an open attitude and a desire to just start, without exactly knowing how.
During this one hour workshop, each participant is given time to come up with her / his own idea for an inclusive Groningen. When all the dreams are made, they are added to the Groningen dreams collection. With the help of design methodologies, participants get the opportunity to connect actions to their dreams. How can our dreams become reality? Participants go back home with some tangible actions they can undertake and in January they receive a message from their dreams...
There is a good reason why the workshop takes place at “de Makerij”, a place where specific actions for a circular and more generous Groningen are devised and implemented through the power of design.
