You want to collect citizens’ opinion on eco-friendly mobility in your city or you want citizens to vote on a land-use plan, but you don’t know what participation tool to use and how to develop the participation strategy?
You don’t have a budget to develop participation tools, you don’t know where to find existing participation tools and you don’t know how to use them for your purpose?
We got you covered.
This website offers a cost-free digital advisory service and helps you find out which participation strategy and which participation tool is best for your purpose.
By going through a step-by-step advisory guide, your needs will be assessed and analyzed to find the right participation tools according to your context and participation goal. The assessment, for example, considers your target groups, their access to digital media, your local conditions.

You will also have the opportunity to dive deeper into developing a participation strategy that integrates the suggested tools and allows for an overview about the entire participation process.
