How to know what people are missing in their neighborhood?



Process Step

Lead the way to user’s future visions with a ‘wishfinding’ signpost!

Many placemaking projects start with the question: what are people missing in this neighborhood? Wishfinding (in Dutch: bewenswijzering) is a simple and creative way to ask local stakeholders about their ideas, making their wishes directly visible. This tool guides you through setting up an on-site workshop, where participants can build their own signposts to desirable destinations in the neighborhood.
