RiHub is a place for contact, exchange and joint action. It will serve as a stage where we will present successful civil initiatives from across Europe and the world in order to inspire the people of Rijeka to action (for example: Amsterdam’s night mayor, Bologna Facebook neighbourhoods, Ljubljana Urban gardens). For this to succeed, we will be reassigning 10 officials from different city departments to their new workplaces in RiHub. Their goal will be to test existing ideas and to encourage people to submit new ideas. Cooperation with different citizen groups will ignite concrete projects dealing with concrete problems or improving life in the city in other ways. The results will be a series of publicly accessible structured guidelines for civil innovations.
The aim of this initiative is to establish a better cooperation between the citizens and the local government. We wish to remove any doubts in the success of this relationship.
