The aim of the project is to conduct a participatory process of revitalization of industrial areas in the city of Chełmno. The project responds to the problems that have been identified in the city, such as: low level of civic and social activity, limited access to social activation programmes addressed to children and youth, and insufficient offer of leisure activities for young people. The public consultations regarding the spatial development of Chełmno (2021) revealed that there was a lack of places in the city where residents could meet. The same problem was mentioned in the Development Strategy of the Chełmno Municipality for 2014-2020. As part of the project, we conduct a participatory process of designing a new green area (the Neighborhood Backyard) and developing a concept for a neighborhood house (the Neighborhood Foundry). We identify needs and expectations of the residents, and analyse the pros and cons of the new area. We conduct workshops for residents, and teach them how to act for the development of their neighborhood. Project partners are the City Council in Chełmno and the Sustainable Development Laboratory Foundation. The partners help identify needs and expectations of the residents, provide plants from the municipal greenhouses to the new area and take part in the consultations. The project is addressed to the residents of Chelmno, representatives of local authorities and NGOs.
