locatie: Green Hub – Urban Academy – Ugent, Sint-Pietersnieuwstraat 31 (plinth UFO building, next to Arts Center Vooruit).
spreker: Chiara Certomà

This session is the final event of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie project “Crowdsourcing Urban Sustainability Governance” and will be introduced by a brief presentation of dr. Chiara Certomà 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 city planning and managing of Ghent. 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.
