We invite you to present how you see the city you live in and your visions of this city’s future by answering the following questions.
1. What is your first thought or feeling when you think of your city?
2. What do you think most represents your city in terms of space? What represents it in the social sense?
3. Do you even want to live in your city and why (not)?
4. How would you summarize the city’s development for the time of your life in it? What were the milestones of development? Where does this development lead?
5. Which actors – individuals, groups, associations, companies – would you highlight as developers or the visionaries of this city?
6. When you think of public spaces in your city, what do you think are the best features of public space? What works best in public spaces and why?
7. What would you like to change in public spaces (what is not good, acceptable, working) and why?
8. How would you tackle these changes? How could you contribute to this change?
9. When you think about societal challenges, what do you think is best organized in your city and why?

11. How would you tackle this issue? What could be a good solution? How could you contribute to this change?
12. Are there global issues, situations, and challenges affecting your city, and how?
13. If you consider the city where you live, what would you like to “leave” to your children? What should the city develop, maintain, change so that your children (continue to) want to live in this city?
14. What is your vision of the ideal city, the city you would like to live in, regardless of whether that vision will come true or not?
Write the answers in the form below. You can also a diary of an urban everyday, a photo, or a drawing showing your vision of the city.
The collected visions will give us an insight into citizens’ opinions, and we will use them as research material and store them in the research ARCHIVE OF URBAN FUTURES.
