Session 3: Open forum – citizen participation in climate smart solutions – Lessons from Kiel, Germany and the Baltics

22 September 2020, 1 pm – 3 pm, CEST / 2 pm – 4 pm, EEST

Zoom videoconference

Currently, smart city projects integrate different forms of citizen participation, such as dialogue meetings, surveys and online platforms. Participation occurs during goal setting, project development, implementation and monitoring. However, citizen participation is not often linked to urban climate action and citizen involvement in actual decision-making varies widely - ranging from co-creation to window-dressing. This session explores citizen participation in smart cities in Germany and the Baltics. Together, we will discuss whether and how current forms of participation should be expanded, how citizens can be more involved in decision-making, and how participation can strengthen municipal climate action.
