What Went On: Process, Interaction, and Participation
Influence, Outcomes, and Effects
Participants voted on several questions related to the law on citizens’ participation; voting sessions were divided into three areas:
- how to improve citizens’ participation;
- how to deal with problems related to infrastructure that concern a lot of people, but whose effect directly impacts a smaller community; and
- how to get more information on the choices that affect us and how to more effectively manage participation.
