Improve the settings for participation
- Ensure the safety, accessibility, and openness of the setting. The space for participation should be free of judgement, and sensitive to different opinions, cultures, and social assets.
- Make participation attractive by providing funding and rewards for participation.
- Create and support existing enabling community spaces and forums (e.g. sports, clubs, community centres, religious institutions.)
- Organise events in accessible times and consider evenings and weekends, depending on the target group.
