Participation for improving everyday life conditions
Åhnby, Ulla; Henning, Cecilia
Future Workshop is a method for participation and empowerment. The method has a distinctive structure and has a pedagogical idea based on democracy and mutual respect. The method consists of three stages, the phase of criticism, the phase of phantasy and the phase of implementation.
Within a range of different projects this method has been implemented with the aim to improve everyday life conditions for older people through participation and engagement. Future Workshop is implemented from a perspective of interactive research. The results from different projects show that Future Workshop can contribute to promote empowerment, strengthen self-esteem and enable social networking. These are aspects of crucial importance for the well-being of older people.
Participation is a key word. The ambition and strategy which is significant for Future Workshop as a method has been analysed in relation to theories within social pedagogy and in relation to the concept of civil society.
