Vicinia wants to increase the “capacity of neighbourhoods”: the ability to meet each other, work together and set a common agenda. Vicinia is a non-profit funded by private partners, but works independently from these partners.
One step in reaching this goal is to create an atlas of neighbourhood initiatives, and describe them according to a common framework, grounded in social science research. For this atlas we would like to re-use existing data as much as possible, improve its quality, and link it to other quality datasets.

I know that the presence of the private partners can make some people uneasy, so feel free to ask about that. They are:

  • Matexi
  • Koning Boudewijnstichting / Foundation Roi Baudoin
  • Partena Promeris
  • BNP Paribas Fortis
  • bpost

Vicinia has an important atlas of neighborhood initiatives in Belgium, we should work to integrate them to IN COMMON.
Much information is on their website and the semantic model is documented here:
