Program

In Germany, public participation in urban development has been practised for a long time. However, successful participatory processes still present challenges – with no silver bullet in sight – especially when it comes to wide-scale strategic urban planning. Integrating of the interests of a range of different departments in the hope of facilitating interdisciplinary co-operation is problematic in itself – and that’s before the citizens have get involved. Despite these difficulties the actions that have arisen from public dissatisfaction in recent years demonstrates that urban development can no longer remain isolated from a participatory public.
