This paper examines how participation is enabled for an individual in the local community. Through the theories of Pierre Bourdieu, Robert Putnam, Anthony Giddens, Axel Honneth, Jean-Paul Sartre, Øystein Sande & Jacob Torfing it is analysed what factors are important for participating, and what impact participating has on the local community. Further more these theories are used to analyse and interpret how our case study GadePressen, an online media, use these factors in their attempt to build an association that creates social cohesion in the local community. Based on the previously mentioned theories and the case study of GadePressen it is discussed how these society structures foster inclusive and or exclusionary communities. The paper shows that participation is created through authenticity, an increase in capitals, networking and recognition. Further more we conclude that GadePressen has an impact on the local community through creating two-way communication, which is one of the factors that lead to more influence in the local community.
