Forum della partecipazione

Co-designing the future of participation

From 19th to 21st June, Mosso Milano, Via Angelo Mosso 3, Milan

The Participation Forum aims to promote the active participation of the community in public life and to discuss the social and political issues of our time. The aim will be to provide a space for comparison, presentation and reflection for those who make Milan a laboratory of reference: thematic workshops, debates, moments of confrontation, will follow one another during the course of the three days, in a rich schedule of events and initiatives.
Starting from an analysis of current trends, the Forum aims to arrive at a shared formulation of the possible future of the key themes of the participatory ecosystem and shared administration.
