key note: Chiara Certomà
This session was the final event of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie project “Crowdsourcing Urban Sustainability Governance” and started with a introduction by dr. Chiara Certomà on the project aims, activities and results.
The focus of the session was to discuss the positive outcomes and also the pitfalls and threats of digital participation in the city planning and managing of Ghent. To this end we introduced the projects results in the form of provisional conclusions and explored in group both the bright and the dark side of digital social participation. We also collected and formulated new research questions on digital participation that Master students can discuss within the Urban Academy.
