Collecting methods, practices, tools, formats, experiences and case studies of prototyping for citizen engagement.
What you will get out of this workshop
In a cocreative session you gain insights and feedback on prototyping strategies for citizen engagement.
There have been various ways to facilitate the engagement of citizens in urban matters, moving from adhoc activism towards more facilitated approaches, such as technological platforms for bottomup initiatives or different types of events organized around civic matters, for example hackathons, design jams, public visualizations and similar formats.
In the context of urban communities, single disconnected events focusing on either technology or social matters often do not foster sustained change. By mapping and collecting various strategies from different disciplines, this workshop contributes to the debate on how to stimulate citizens engagement and encourage people to look beyond their respective fields, crosspollinate different approaches and consequently strengthen their work by incorporating other strategies as well.
