In step 2 of this lesson you have already read a lot about hidden poverty.
You are a municipal councillor in a medium-sized city. Your portfolio includes poverty policy. You know that many people do not like to show off their poverty. You would like to help these people, but how can you reach them? Together with some other councillors of your party, you are preparing a proposal* on hidden poverty to be presented to the city council.
Nissewaard City Council
* A proposal or motion is a short statement on a subject, expressing an opinion, wish or request, without legal consequences. If desired, the initiator can add to the motion a call to action to the college or the council. Every councillor can submit a written motion to the chairman of the council during a council meeting. If a majority of the council votes in favour of the motion, it is 'accepted'.
