From one off projects to systematic participation ­čçČ­čçž

The road to institutionalization of public participation and the role of civic techLink zur Session

In the past five years, Czech Republic has seen a great development in the number and complexity of participation approaches and digital tools. Now, as Czech and Slovak practitioners are slowly moving towards creating more systematic participation, the best practices in the use of digital tools in the Czech Republic and the typical challenges and opportunities for digital participation will be discussed.

Together with our experts and coordinators of participation it will also be discussed how to expand the use of digital participation to meet the requirements of systematic participation and what are the best Czech and Slovak practices that could fit into German and broader EU context.

Unfortunately, it is a common misconception that Czech Republic and Slovakia lag behind when it comes to innovation and development of new democratic tools and approaches. Yet the past 5 years showed an exponential growth in the number of participation-driven projects and digital tools that can support them. 

At the same time, Czech and Slovak practitioners are slowly moving away from the one-time participatory projects and venture into the field of systematic participation. So, what are the best practices in the use of digital tools in the Czech Republic? What are the typical challenges and opportunities for digital participation? How can we expand the use of digital participation to meet the requirements of systematic participation? And how can we bring the best Czech and Slovak practices into German and broader EU context?
