Civic Crowdfunding and Citizen-led Micro-regeneration: case studies from European cities

This workshop provides the opportunity to discuss emerging practices of civic crowdfunding initiatives as generators of new forms of local participation and as activators of new forms of citizen-led, innovative micro-regeneration projects in European cities. The focus is on small-scale projects through which citizens and community groups proactively engage in the design, financial resources and transformation of urban spaces.

The workshop aims to bring together people, whether from an academic, practice based or lay perspective, to discuss innovative, small-scale initiatives supported through civic crowdfunding.

The workshop will explore a number of key core themes, for example: social innovation, technology, community building, local participation, local governance, design.
