Tools and Activities for Dreamlike Neighbourhoods


The Chatpot is a large glass pot that can be placed in the middle of the table during a group meeting. The pot contains all kinds of questions on pieces of paper. The participants choose a random piece of paper and read the question aloud. If they want, they can answer the question. Then others respond with more in-depth questions or with their own experiences. This quickly creates a lively conversation, and the participants get to know each other in a nice way.

Examples of questions:

  • What do you like about your neighbourhood?
  • What do you appreciate about the area you live in?
  • What are your biggest concerns about the area you live in?
  • If parts of the neighbourhood were to be demolished, what would you miss most?
  • What are your greatest expectations of the area you live in?
  • What do you remember about your last contact with your neighbours?
  • When you want to relax, which place do you like to visit?
  • How do you get to the nice places in the neighbourhood?
  • What kind of house would you prefer to live in?
  • How are you kept informed of what is going on in your neighbourhood?
  • What do you think of the green areas in and around your home?
  • Are there good things that have disappeared from your neighbourhood?
  • What are the nice places to have a cup of coffee with your neighbours or family?
  • What has made you happy in your neighbourhood recently?
  • What do you find important in life?
