Press release - The beginning was made: Neighboring the Neighborhood goes into the 2. round
Next meeting of Neighborhood re-thought on 09.05.2019 at 18: 00 pm in Clemens-Dülmer School (Stresemannstr. 1). At the kick-off event on 4.4. came together many good ideas, how the local people want to actively shape their neighborhood. Daniel Renzel and Manuel Loeker from the CaritasQuartier development had invited to rethink neighborhood. More than 30 people from the neighborhood in Bocholt East had accepted the invitation and sought out fellow campaigners for their ideas.
These ideas will now be further discussed and implemented. But there is still the possibility to bring in new topics. Finally, all residents, whether young or old, whether born or brought in here, are still invited to the second meeting of "Neighborhood Thinking". "Rethinking neighborhoods should provide a platform where people can meet, exchange information and implement their ideas the way you would like to," says Manuel Loeker.
The participants of the kick-off event on "Rethinking Neighborhood - Where my idea finds a start" were not enticed with a program planned down to the last detail. Rather, it was the organizers' approach to create a framework and to organize the evening together with the residents. The focus was on the ideas and ideas of the participants, not those of the organizers. "We could only plan the cornerstones and let the rest surprise us," says Daniel Renzel. "And even now we do not know yet where the journey will take us," adds Manuel Loeker. However, the first themes have already emerged.
The field of joint activities was very well received. Here the participants wanted to go for a walk together, ride a bicycle or simply sit together, talk and discuss.
Lively discussions and a great deal of interest were brought about by the themes of urban greening and Urban Gardening. Again, a first meeting was independently and promptly organized. The list of ideas and wishes of 30 residents, of course, includes far more topics that are just waiting to be implemented by the fellow campaigners.
The first results of the inaugural event also depend on the "showcase" of the district office in Münsterstraße 23a and are constantly updated. Contact is still Manuel Loeker under the 02871 / 2513-1208 or directly in the district office.
