Citizens coming together to rebuild local communities
People Assemblies Online 🔅
It’s easy to get caught up in our respective social media bubbles. We end up seeing things are black or white. We stop understanding each other and we become blind to solutions that can help increase the resilience of our communities.
That’s why we are organizing People Assemblies. It’s an opportunity to learn about a topic with experts but also with fellow citizens.

Citizen Spring Academy 🌱☀️🌻
Incubator for starting new sustainable places in the city. In a world that has to change, we need entrepreneurs more than ever. We need them to turn our cities into 15-minute cities, where we can all enjoy a fun and sustainable lifestyle within a 15-minute radius, walk or bike. If you have ever dreamed of starting your own sustainable shop, this is for you!
Citizen Garden 🌱 🌻
Nature defending itself in cities made for cars. Use the space in front of your garage door or next to a pedestrian crossing where cars are not supposed to park to put a community garden. It also creates a reason to bring neighbors together around a shared project.
Citizen Bike Garden 🚲 🌱
Building with neighbors a bike shed for 6-8 bikes with two citizen gardens on top.

Kidical Mass 🚲 👧
Every last Sunday of the month at 5pm, we do a critical mass for kids. We bike around in the city with a few dozen kids and parents and some music!. Great atmosphere
Rainbow bike lanes 🚲 🌈
Life is more exciting in colors! Draw new bike lanes or put some colors on existing ones. You just need a large cardboard to make a stencil (125cm x 15cm) and some spray paint.
