Project description
The Civic Monitoring of Sports conducted in 2013-1014 showed that there was a problem of insufficient participation of inhabitants of Koszalin in developing city sports policy. The city authorities decided to develop detailed City Development Strategy in the area of sports and recreation. The Institute of Sustainable Development decided to prepare civic recommendations for the municipal document on city sports policy.

The aim of the project was to include needs of inhabitants in the city sports and recreation policy.

As a result of the project activities, a report was prepared that presented opinions of inhabitants on the conditions for amateur sports activity in the city. The document was supplemented with remarks from the city president's Sports Council and in December will be forwarded to the authorities of Koszalin. In addition, participants of the meetings filed 7 applications to civic budget of Koszalin concerning activities related to civic recommendations.

Under the project, 12 meetings were organised with inhabitants of Koszalin, representatives of sports clubs, civic organisations and local authorities in various places open to general public. In addition to inhabitants and sports activists, also city councillors and representatives of city authorities were invited. As a result of the ideas and opinions presented during the meetings, 10 research walks were organised. Research groups, based on conclusions and ideas worked out during the first phase of the project, prepared photographic documentation of the places. Based on the activities, a report on amateur sports in Koszalin was prepared. As a result of the project activities, on the initiative from the chancellor of the Koszalin Technical University, an academic conference was organised concerning city sports activities on the lake Jamno.
