the city coalition
The City Coalition methodology started in 2016 as an action-research project in the municipality of Leidschendam-Voorburg, an initiative of Esseline van de Sande (social psychologist) in collaboration with Shervin Nekuee (sociologist). From mid-2017 onwards, Esseline further developed and expanded the concept and methodology also in other cities like Leeuwarden and Rotterdam.
From the beginning Joël van Dooren (filmmaker) has followed and recorded the process, resulting in the film "The City Coalition". This mini-documentary is part of the masterclass and is available on request in combination with the events.
