Communication Toolbox

In this section you will be able to access to the local communication toolbox containing open source, co-creation tools as well as SUNRISE’s own guidelines and methodologies for event organisation and moderation. SUNRISE will help residents, users, stakeholders, decision makers and private sector representatives in the five action neighbourhoods to analyse and articulate their own situation as an opportunity for reflection, learning and sharing. The tools will help to visualise the local challenges and options to address them.
