Results of six seedbed interventions in the six Cultivating Cities


This report shows the processes and results of six seedbed interventions in the project in the six Cultivating Cities. These interventions were developed in close cooperation between city partners and partners from WP3. Already in 2021, the city partners held online and/or face-to-face workshops (Challenge Workshops) in their cities to understand the challenges, inform stakeholders about the project and the interventions and in particular to recruit some of them as a local taskforce for more intensive engagement. Following this, additional workshops were organized by city partners until early 2022 (the Planning Intervention Workshops) to co-creatively develop the seedbed interventions. The city staff together with project partners from WP3 then implemented the seedbed interventions in their cities between July 2022 and September 2022. During the interventions, information and knowledge about future developments in the cities was transferred to participants, as well as active participation formats were used to gather public opinion about the upcoming NBS interventions in the cities in 2023.

Through interviews, discussion formats and experimental formats such as the Photovoice method, participants took part in a variety of activities (see chapter 3). The results of these different activities are summarized and presented in this report. The NBS interventions which will be implemented in the cities in 2023 will be further developed based on these results.
