Design for democracy
Participatory processes in the public sector force us to redefine what the democratic debate means today. Active citizens not only contribute to re-think approaches to government, but also co-produce new ways of conceiving government itself, by introducing, for example, new services where citizens, administrators and other players collaborate in building a more open, resilient and democratic society. This day will be dedicated to understanding this phenomenon, by exploring how the design for social innovation can contribute concretely to regenerate the democratic systems of our cities and territories.
For those who wish to experience co-creation and co-production processes of ecosystemic urban regeneration. For those involved in the design for social innovation, or design of products and services – public sector, third sector, private companies, consultants, planners, early career profiles looking to deepen their knowledge of design for social innovation.
