Participatory democracy

problem tree

This is now a normal _and useful_ way of working. This month, I have live-drawn in remote mode for Agen Agglomération and their two online meetings "Active Citizens". This group of european middle-sized cities are working on "driving change for better cities". Their specific topic is : "From representative democracy to participatory democracy", a hard but exiting task they handle together.

Here a sample of the live drawings executed during the meetings; you can also have a look on the customer reviews.

Above: The PROBLEM TREE is a tool used in the URBACT method; it's a "graphical representation of an existing problem, its causes and effects which aims to get a clear and shared understanding of the issue". Every members have worked on it before the numeric meeting.

For each group, the purpose of the meetings was to present the vision of their own city in 2031; i.e. with all current concerns solved. 


Live drawings are also an entertainment; here a resume of the "caméra café" parody video realized by the team of Agen; a very fun way to present the expectations on participatory democracy for 2031.
