The aim of the project is to increase residents’ social participation in Chełmińskie Przedmieście, which is a neighbourhood in the City of Toruń, and to (re)construct their local identity. In the course of our activities, we have diagnosed a low level of public engagement of this local community and, as a result, weakening or disappearance of the residents’ local identity. We are implementing the project in partnership with the Chełmińskie Przedmieście District Council and the Sustainable Development Laboratory (NGO). As part of the project, we are developing a case study preceded by research and workshops for residents and the participants of the Chełmińskie Przedmieście District Council. These activities will make it possible, on the one hand, to reach the local community with information about the history of the district, its problems and ways of solving them and, on the other, to gather and supplement the information we have about the problem at hand. The working method developed for one of the city’s thirteen districts can be applied to other districts. The case study will be used to develop recommendations and a proposal for public consultation on the functioning of district councils in the City of Toruń. The Chełmińskie Przedmieście District Council will submit a proposal to the Mayor of Toruń using the materials collected and elaborated during the project.
