CIVITAS Insight on citizen and stakeholder engagement released

CIVITAS Initiative

The 16th CIVITAS Insight is now available, giving information on how to engage the citizens of today to build the sustainable cities of tomorrow.

The 16th CIVITAS Insight concerns the involvement and participation of citizens and stakeholders in the field of sustainable urban mobility, as it is necessary to address their actual needs and to obtain public legitimacy. New information and communication technologies have started to shift citizen participation methods more towards online environments. We are entering an era of Participation 2.0.

Today, there is no escaping the widespread adoption of social media. Similar to the rise of the personal computer, mobile phones and the internet, the ascent of social media is historic and transformative in influencing the way people think, behave and communicate. In few other places is this transformation more distinct and revolutionary than in the use of Participation 2.0 in government administration.

Download and read the 16th CIVITAS Insight, or access all published and forthcoming Insights on the Key Publications page.
