How to make a good proposal
Write down your idea carefully. A well-made proposal will interest others and make them vote for it.
On this page you will find tips for making a good proposal.
Give your idea a good descriptive title
Give your idea a title that will help the reader to immediately understand what the proposal is about.
These are good titles: “Pony riding in Hervanta”, “A heavy metal concert in Santalahti Event Park”, “A cooking course for high school students in Lielahti”.
Explain your idea
Explain your idea briefly and clearly in a few sentences.
Make sure your description answers the following questions:
- What kind of activity are you proposing?
- What is the age group it is intended for? The age of the target group does not have to be defined precisely. Definitions such as the following are sufficient: for kindergarten-age children, primary school children, over 16-year-olds.
- Is your idea meant to be implemented in a specific place? You don’t have to have in your mind any particular place where your idea could be implemented. However, if you have thought that it could take place at Laukontori, Ikurin Virelä or Hatanpää Arboretum, for example, you can say that here. You can also specify the exact street address of the venue if you wish. In that case, look up the address in advance.
- How will the activity you propose increase the well-being of children and young people?
- Who has done the drawing or taken the photo? Each idea can be accompanied by one illustration – a drawing or a photo. If you use an illustration, be sure to say who did the drawing or took the photo.
You don’t have to figure out who could implement the activity or what it would cost. Just an idea and a good explanation are enough.
Decide on the theme
On the Mun Tampere page, ideas are tagged with a theme. The themes are hashtags that make it easier for people to find ideas of a similar nature.
Is your idea related to any of the following themes?
- Comfortable and safe everyday life
- Hobbies and leisure
- Knowledge, skills and work
- Participating and influencing
- Nature, environment and urban space
- Equality and non-discrimination
If your idea doesn’t seem to match any of these categories, or if it seems to belong to more than one category, you can also use the “Other themes” hashtag.
If you are finding it difficult to select a theme, you can refer to the descriptions of the themes on the Themes page.
Increase visibility with a picture
If you want, you can attach an illustration to your idea. A picture is a great way to direct people’s attention to your idea.
The picture may be a drawing or a photo you have taken. You can also use a photo taken by someone else if you have their permission to do so. Images taken from the Internet may only be used if they are dedicated to the public domain (CC0 license). Be sure to mention the name of the author of the picture.
The size of the picture must not exceed 10MB. Please check the size of the picture and reduce it, if necessary, before you start filling out the proposal form.
Submit your idea through the proposal form
Once you have your proposal written and you have selected the image and resized it, you are ready to transfer your idea and the image to the proposal form.
The form is very simple to fill in. However, you can check out the filling-in instructions on the “How to submit an idea” page.
