Through the ROCK EU-funded project, EUROCITIES and Julie’s Bicycle invite you to a webinar on participatory approaches in cultural heritage. The webinar will be the opportunity to discuss ideas and local experiences around participatory approaches and how this contribute to better social cohesion in our cities.

To make sure urban development in cultural heritage and other areas is inclusive and brings social change, cities’ administrations must improve the terms on which individuals and groups take part in society, confronting barriers that prevent participation and meeting communities’ needs. Allowing for bottom up ideas in the participation process is a step towards more socially inclusive planning, especially if these ideas are taken into consideration in decision making.

ROCK cities are testing new approaches to working with communities in a way that is sensitive, supportive, inquiring and carefully analytical, challenging but not directive or patronizing. The final aim is to enhance the capacity of community organisations to influence the decisions that concern them, bringing a more equitable outcome to the process. This webinar will present some of the approaches tested at local level in Lisbon, Turin and Cluj-Napoca.

Join us for an interactive discussion!
When? Thursday 3 October 2019/15.00 – 16.30 CET via GoToWebinar.
