Governance & Participation

Junior workshop in Stuttgart, December 10 - 13, 2015

Close to the end of the year, around 15 AGGN fellows met in the Southern German city of Stuttgart, capital of the federal state of Baden-Württemberg, to discuss questions of participation in democratic processes. The program included a closer look at the exceptional case of "Stuttgart 21" which is one of the most recent and prominent examples of negotiating the role of the people in public planning processes. Further topics were "E-Governance" and the concept of "Open Government". The program was rounded up by a skills training on "project management".
