We are interested in questions such as:
– What happens when urban planners are no longer the only ones holding the pen and citizens become empowered to self-organize?
– What communication is needed to support participation processes?
– How are structures, ideas and proposals visualized and applied in urban living labs?
– Can new technological means empower civic self-organisation and how does this impact the authority of the public power in planning?
We especially welcome all types of actors in participation: from researchers in academia to practitioners, public institutions, civic associations, and citizens involved in a living lab or participation process.
