On the 19th and 20th of May 2022, the transversal partners from the IN-HABIT project visited the city of Nitra. This gave them the chance to get acquainted with the environment, the intervention corridor, and the partnership, all in order to provide the local team with tailor-made support. A series of workshops were held with the direct involvement of the target groups and institutional stakeholders at a local level.
Together with BOT, UREAD, and TSR partners, a two-day agenda was agreed upon. The visit started with a walk through the city, in order to present the city’s state of development and outline the key issues within the pilot area; this was followed by a discussion on the problems facing the affected communities and public spaces on the Hidepark – City Park – Industrial Park – Dražovce neighbourhood axis. The partners visited the premises of the Hidepark cultural and community centre, where the local team presented the existing and emerging innovative solutions and services that Hidepark provides to Nitra’s population and marginalised communities.
The main purpose of the site visit was to understand the specific trajectory of the research and innovation agenda in Nitra. During the workshops, held in the atelier of the SUA Faculty of Horticulture and Landscape Engineering, the group discussed the challenges associated with delivering hard and soft solutions in Nitra. They also became acquainted with the specific requirements of creating the “Inclusive Transition Pathways” and the scope of involvement in creating its methodology together with the TSR coordinator. Along with the public and members of the Nitra IN-HUB, the group participated in the “Gender Landscape” workshop and co-designed the set-up for behavioural games under the guidance of UREAD. The partners also directly observed the processes and workings of the local IN-HUB group, in order to better understand how they co-designed solutions at specific points of our pilot area – especially solutions that are linked to the Dražovce neighbourhood.
The partners also had the chance to attend the Hidepark cultural and community centre’s opening event, where they discussed topics related to the project, as well as addressing the problems of the local communities in general.
