Urban development based on solidarity, on the other hand, must mean, Actors from different milieus in the city(part)include development, to take their interests into account and to enable them to express themselves.

But how should participatory methods of urban development based on solidarity look like?? And how can groups/individuals be involved in urban development processes, which are difficult or. cannot be reached?
