Hüfingen: Drawing the future with sticky notes: 100 Hüfingers participate in urban development

As soon as they entered the hall, the visitors participated. They were given sticky points that they could use to mark their region and age group. They were also asked if they had already participated in the first future dialogue.

About 100 citizens followed Hüfingen’s call to actively participate in politics in the second Hüfinger Future Dialogue. In this way, many suggestions and wishes came together again, which will be evaluated in the next few days.

Very few young people with us

The participants came mainly from the heart of the city, most of them had already participated in the first edition in 2018, most of them were between 30 and 60 years old. Moderator Dennis Braunbarth was satisfied with the participation, only the proportion of young people who were personally contacted left much to be desired.

The focus was on the themes of ‘Aquarie’, ‘Live and Build’, ‘Nature and the Environment’ and ‘Youth and Children’. And in some kind of market, various stalls were set up on the subjects, on which experts of city employees worked. Here, citizens can inform themselves, discuss and also contribute their own suggestions.

Repeatedly, however, paintings were created in which the opinion was given with the help of sticky dots, but also paintings in which one could express one’s opinion or desires with sticky notes.

The white wall is used a lot

There was also a so-called white wall in the hallway, where one could make contributions on topics that were not on the agenda that evening. This has been widely used. The most important results of a survey conducted earlier were also displayed in the lobby, which can be viewed in detail here.
