NGO will monitor LA's reaction to the reported problems: system differentiates between an alert/solution under status problem solved. - PR/public action for e-tool and voting, in the social media/SMS, on the area for the pilot site intervention (pro-active on-line social consultations) - Consultations on the detailed development plan for the pilot site, with the participation of CSO/NGO /LA/community, held under charette method by V4 and UA & EaP architects & community dev. experts; - Implementation of the element chosen in charrette consultations (e.g. a bench, a swing, or a summer house, a lighting, accessibility/greenery upgraded) by CSO/NGO leaders and V4 architects: live design architectural workshops; Trust building for local NGO: public space intervention/ in line with community Application (21470152-975130) - International Visegrad Fund http://projects.visegradfund.org/Print.aspx?t=print 3 z 15 2014-12-10 01:11 needs; - Praxis CB for CSO/LA in fund-raising addressing problems identified via e-tool: V4 experts (incl. permanent on-line support via proj. generator); - Dissemination & multiplication conf for LA/NGOs from SE UA; Evaluation of the cons.
