Project Description

The goal of the Project is to enhance local communities’ development in Poland, especially enable envisioning social policy and solving social problems. This will be done by providing and diffusing a set of practical tools to be used by local communities and citizen groups to self-diagnose their needs and potential in terms of agenda-setting and provoking change in a given locality. The goal will be achieved by completing a thorough process of ‘mapping’ the localities, conducted in 2 communes (Bialowieza, podlaskie voivodship, and Zoliborz, a district of Warsaw). The mapping process in these 2 communes will serve as a source of best practices and will enable to develop and test the local diagnosis ‘tool-kit’ so that it can work for other localities. The method we will use is a participatory one: people themselves will be involved in building the understanding of their local world. Mapping process will be followed by local debates. The mapping process is aiming at building common understanding, identifying sources of conflicts and looking for the common solution.
