What is it about?
The City of tomorrow will only be able to develop with the active involvement of its residents. In this context, the City of Brussels has developed a digital platform for exchange and cooperation to consult residents on projects or ideas. This participation tool concerns three aspects of the relationship between the City and residents: information exchange, polls and cooperation. The City starts with launching pilot projects, such as the Citizen Budget, the district meetings and project calls from various departments of the City.
Through this platform, residents are asked to contribute to a project or project call. Hereby, the City opens a space for proposals, for dialogue and polls, and collects responses to enrich, clarify or orientate ideas in a bottom-up dynamics.
By developing a digital platform for exchange and cooperation, the City wants to expand its target audience, strengthen and expand its daily operations, and increase the confidence of its residents.
Each resident can easily participate at any time via the Internet, tablet or smartphone. Participation can also be limited by placing an advice, a vote or proposing an idea. You can also participate more actively through cocreation or by submitting your own projects.
