Classification Framework

The activities are classified based on several key parameters that aid in better understanding their nature and purpose. These parameters encompass location, including indoor, outdoor, or a mix of both, determining the activity’s setting, and contact with beneficiaries, categorised as substantial interaction, minimal contact, or no direct engagement.
Interaction, which can be physical, intellectual, emotional, or social, each defines the type of engagement required. Physical interactions entail manual assistance, intellectual interactions involve specific problem-solving skills, emotional interactions create relational moments with emotional impact, and social interactions focus on personal communication and shared challenges.

Spadel Belgium's "One Citizen Day" 2019: Making a Meaningful Impact
