Between May and December 2021, I conducted dialogue and engagement activities surrounding the Forth Meadow Community Greenway in Belfast together with my colleague Ian Graham which were targeted at reaching disabled groups, young people, minority ethnic groups and local residents more widely. This work built off of our previous engagement work in Belfast.
The Forth Meadow Community Greenway is funded by the EU’s PEACE IV Programme, and is intended to be a physical representation of the peace process in Belfast and to promote reconciliation between interface communities in a lasting way. The project links together a number of existing pathways in North and West Belfast, stitching together a fragmented landscape and creating new pathways and possibilities.
The second phase of citizen engagement and dialogue project for the Forth Meadow Community Greenway was carried out in several phases. The project team worked with a number of different methods to generate dialogue among local stakeholders and increase participation in the co-creation of the Greenway. This project was able to reach more than 150 stakeholders and residents in a mix of digital and in person formats.
