Climate adaptation, energy transition and clean air are themes that concern Middellanders. Radical greening, the establishment of a local solar energy cooperative, creating green roofs, 1,000 rain barrels, maintenance & management of public space and organizing dialogues with the neighborhood for larger redevelopment tasks are just a few examples of the work of the Middellander.
With the music and design studio De Fabriek and a digital platform like the e-health community, we build bridges between talent development and care for the vulnerable, from young to old. Via daytime activities to management & maintenance of public space to ‘customized care’ for and by Middellanders, we organise encounters and joint walks through the neighborhood. That’s not only healthy but enhances social cohesion.
The neighborhood Atlas is the online and offline platform for communication and co-creation in Middelland. We use data (measuring = knowing) to make residents aware of what is happening in the neighborhood with regard to the quality of the living environment. Through stories we share information about who, what and where. ‘Tools’ are being developed that can help you as a resident to get involved with the people and concrete projects that take place in the neighbourhood.
