Participation – or manipulation?
Does participation work?
- Location: Arkitektenes hus, Josefines gate 34
Participation in the context of housing and city planning has a long history. The demand of citizen participation has only grown stronger, and the distribution of roles between public and private actors has changed. The processes are subject to a wider and more unclear range of methods, terminology and tools.
Is there a tendency towards more manipulation and "green washing", or can these kinds of processes lead to actual improvement in the way we develop neighbourhoods?
The aim of the seminar is to give an update on the latest trends in participatory practices, to critically review different approaches and to discuss future challenges.
