What can I do myself?
An assembly is a group of members of an organization who meet periodically to make decisions about a specific area or scope of the organization.
Assemblies hold meetings, some are private and some are open. If they are open, it is possible to participate in them (for example: attending if the capacity allows it, adding points to the agenda, or commenting on the proposals and decisions taken by this organ).
Examples: A general assembly (which meets once a year to define the organisation's main lines of action as well as its executive bodies by vote), an equality advisory council (which meets every two months to make proposals on how to improve gender relations in the organisation), an evaluation commission (which meets every month to monitor a process) or a guarantee body (which collects incidents, abuses or proposals to improve decision-making procedures) are all examples of assemblies.
There should be more biodiversity in Wipkingen. This means that an increase of animals, insects and birds get the chance to rediscover their habitat. For this purpose, this project aims to animate and enable the residents of the neighborhood to support this mission by participating in small activities - in front of their door, on their balcony, or in the public space.
The Zeitgut cooperative will organize 5 free professional consultation tours accompanied by an expert. Thereby, concrete examples will be looked at on site and possible courses of action will be analyzed. These consultations are public and therefore open to all interested parties. Furthermore, we will organize 2 networking events for interested parties in the neighborhood to exchange practical tips. These will be documented and published free of charge. In this way, other interested parties can also be inspired by them.
This project is part of the shared vision "Green Wipkingen". Here you can find the concept of the project.
Submitted on behalf of Genossenschaft Zeitgut Zürich Höngg Wipkingen.
This project was granted a part of the neighborhood budget by the population of Wipkingen as part of the «Quartieridee Wipkingen». You can find the original idea here.
