Exploring Digital Social Participation for urban governance in Ghent

29 May 2019, Ghent, Belgium

You are invited to the UGent Urban Academy session “Exploring Digital Social Participation for urban governance in Ghent”,

29th May 2019, 2 pm- 4 pm, UGent City Academy / Green Hub, Sint-Pietersnieuwstraat 31 (plinth UFO building, next to Arts Center Vooruit).

The session is the final event of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie project “Crowdsourcing Urban Sustainability Governance” and will be introduced by a brief presentation on the project aims, activities and results.

The focus of the session is to discuss with you collectively or in two small groups, together with the positive outcomes, also the pitfalls and threats of digital participation in the planning and managing of the city. To this end we will introduce the projects results in the form of provisional conclusions and seek for your help to further explore both the bright and the dark side of digital social participation.

We also want to collect and formulate new research questions on digital participation that Master students can discuss within the Urban Academy. Contact me if you want to get a digital “CROWD_USG project pack” which will bring you (hopefully) inspiring challenges for the collective discussion.
