Good one @Fausto. I believe all four options are indeed important, but that the content of options 1 and 2, which as I understand it, is more related to citizens and community actors’ involvement, engagement and attitudes towards the project/idea. I consider these aspects more important to discover than for instance the motivation of the people who came up with the idea, as in the end the success of the project depends on the acceptance of community “affected”.
To add to this, another option or complementary to the first one mentioned, could be participatory research involving the community actors “affected”. This method would allow CW to get a feeling for attitudes, needs and characteristics of the community group affected by the project and at the same time, it could be a way of connecting directly with the group to improve the idea and eventually faciliate their interest, action and engagement in terms the project.
