Individual unfulfilled needs.
Few activities around the canal, difficult to further interact with the canal.
High life pressure leads to people's unmet needs to interact with nature. Due to the lack of canal activities around Hoxton, people's interaction degree with the canal is limited, resulting in the lack of motivation for residents living nearby to be involved in the canal.
Not making full use of canal resources.
The canal organization has limited promotional channels, making it difficult to find collaborating institutions and carry out activities targeting specific community needs. It is challenging to attract more community participants, resulting in low engagement. As a consequence, both canal activities and natural resources cannot be fully utilized.
Lack the connection with the canal and nature.
Most residents mention environmental issues around the canal, while the community centre lacks awareness of canal conservation and how the canal can enhance the well-being of residents. There are no resources to organize nature activities related to the canal, providing an opportunity to introduce canal conservation organizations.
