A blueprint for empowering residents and revitalising Central Baltic neighbourhoods

A blueprint for empowering residents and revitalising Central Baltic neighbourhoods
Description

CADDIES developed methods and tools that communties can use to help residents collaborate and improve their neighbourhoods. Residents in Finland, Sweden and Latvia have benefited from the project’s grassroots work to make their neighbourhoods more attractive and inclusive.

Results

The barriers include inadequately defined roles for voluntary work in local development or weak connections between residents and municipal authorities. The cross-border project CADDIES addressed such challenges by piloting initiatives in six neighbourhoods across cities in Finland, Sweden and Latvia. The project deployed tools to motivate residents to volunteer and collaborate in improving their own houses, blocks or neighbourhoods in sustainable ways. They aimed to improve their living conditions and develop more inclusive communties.
