Project Description

The Senate of the State of Berlin is seeking to promote citizens’ participation as a foundation of political decision-making and to involve citizens in Berlin’s development.

Crucial to achieving this is the development of guidelines for the participation of citizens in urban development. As early as June 2017, the requirements for these guidelines were publicly discussed at a city forum. In November 2017, a working committee was formed, which consisted of citizens, Berlin politicians, and the administrators who are in charge of developing the guidelines. Citizens will be involved in the participation process both online at and in local workshops.

nexus, together with the Planners’ Association for City and Space (Planergemeinschaft für Stadt und Raum eG), is responsible for accompanying the work process. This includes providing information on examples of guidelines from other cities and examples of participation from Berlin, moderating the meetings of the working committee, preparing the workshops, and preparing the results for the finalized guidelines. nexus is also involved in accompanying the overall process.
