Stories About Participation​

In this section, people are telling their stories about participation. It is intended as an inspirational collection of voices, ideas and experiences from urban neighbourhoods all over the world. The opportunity to participate or make one’s voice heard is usually most limited in informal settlements or poor neighbourhoods. Therefore, these stories focus on ideas for more urban participation  in poorer communities. Do you have a story to share from your neighbourhood? Get in touch with me!

This is a geographic overview of all the Stories I have collected so far:
