Positivity in neighbourhoods:
Local communities are at the centre of citizen participation
With Hoplr in your municipality, you strengthen engagement and involvement on a neighbourhood level. Social cohesion, offline meetings and local engagement are the basic requirements for achieving meaningful inclusion and citizen participation. It's all about dialogue, working together and even getting your hands dirty.
Move from reaching citizens to involving citizens. From communication to citizen participation. A modern municipality knows what's going on and listens to its citizens. This way, policy making can be tailor made to the needs of the municipality's inhabitants.
Hoplr makes it easy for citizens to rely on each other and on the social capital of the local community. For example, they use Hoplr to share information, to socialise, to organise activities, to find help with chores, and to exchange items.
