Berlin Guidelines for Citizen Participation in Urban Development - Communication Concept

Senate Department for Urban Development and Housing Berlin

The Senate of the State of Berlin would like to promote the participation of citizens as a principle of political decision-making and involve them in the development of Berlin. A central component is the development of guidelines for citizen participation for processes and projects of spatial urban development. As early as June 2017, the requirements for this were publicly discussed at a city forum. In November of the same year, a working committee consisting of Berlin politicians, administrators and citizens was formed to develop the guidelines. Citizens will be involved in a participation process online at and in local workshops.

The aim of the communicative support is to involve Berliners and interested actors of the urban society and to inform them about the process of developing guidelines. The nexus Institute, together with its partners MediaCompany and Liquid Democracy, has been commissioned to develop a communication concept and to implement it in close coordination with the working committee and the client.
