The event brought together experts, stakeholders, and citizens to discuss and develop effective communication strategies to drive renovation initiatives led by the community.

Workshop Overview

The workshop featured a series of interactive sessions and discussions aimed at exploring various aspects of communication strategies that can be employed in citizen-led renovation projects. The primary goal was to identify and overcome common barriers, enhance community engagement, and promote successful renovation practices.

Conclusions and Recommendations

The workshop concluded with several key recommendations for enhancing communication in citizen-led renovation initiatives:

  • Utilise Multi-Channel Communication: Employing a combination of social media, traditional media, and face-to-face interactions to reach and engage different audience segments.
  • Focus on Storytelling: Sharing success stories and personal experiences to inspire and motivate others.
  • Provide Clear and Accessible Information: Ensuring that information about renovation processes, benefits, and support mechanisms is easily accessible and understandable.
