The relationship between government and society is changing. More and more citizens are becoming engaged and want to play an active role in their community and local government. Likewise, citizen participation is a hot topic in local administrations and increasingly seen as a chance to collaboratively design our cities. How can local government support citizen participation? And how can citizens become more involved in local governance? Can the gap between citizen initiatives and governmental decision making be bridged?

During this evening program Ger Baron (Chief Technology Officer, City of Amsterdam) Caroline Paulick-Thiel (Managing Partner, nextlearning and Strategic Design Lead, Politics for Tomorrow) among others will provide some answers to these questions. The program starts at 18:15 and finishes at 20:15. Doors open at 17:45.
