The National Meetings of Participation are the annual meeting of professionals and non-professional practitioners of consultation. For three days, decision-makers, experts, activists, practitioners and citizens explore the effects of participatory tools and mechanisms on the world of today and tomorrow.
This year’s theme, "Democracy in turmoil", will be based on 5 questions:
What future after the health crisis? What kind of democratic renewal do we want?
Democratic innovations: which deliberative tools strengthen participation? How do new technologies transform relations in our society?
Democracy in the territories: after municipal elections, what renewal of participation? How do we co-build transitions in the territories?
Ecological and energy transition: can participation be a driving force in responding to climate issues?
Inclusion: which methods for an inclusive participation? How to involve absent audiences and overcome divides?
Registration is closed but you can follow some round tables and the plenary live on social networks on October 20th and 21st.
