Mit-Mach-Stadt Brandis

About the project

The project addresses new forms of civic participation focussing on social and digital connectedness. The goal is to co-design an inclusive, digital society. 

During the process several questions emerged: How can we encourage participation, facilitate exchange and create more transparent processes between municipalities and citizens? Which opportunities do citizens have to increase the livability of their city in a self-organizing way? How can we create a just and fulfilled coexistence? Which structures can be strengthened by the municipality and which role plays the digitalization therein?
