Our aim is to help municipal institutions and urban planning practitioners gain a better understanding of participatory urban planning. Here at BaseCamp you can find the ideal solution for your participatory projects. 

Despite its relatively recent origins, participatory planning is becoming the go-to approach to any urban development project. Public involvement in urban planning processes cannot always follow the same template. Every city and every municipality is unique and as such every project - from the revitalization of public spaces to strategic planning - requires a different participatory approach. It is therefore essential that practitioners in the field of participatory planning have a repertoire of different participatory methods and processes at their disposal. Here at BaseCamp, you will find online trainings of the most important skills for participatory planning, a glossary of frequently used terms, and a selection of case studies from the Czech Republic and Prague-based program of Participation Coordinators, as well as case studies from other European countries.

If you would like more information or wish to collaborate with the IPR Prague Participation Office, please contact us at participace@ipr.praha.eu.

Participation Coordinators

The Participation Coordinators Program aims to establish participation as a standard practice in Prague, leveling the playing field for participation in planning throughout the city districts. Participatory planning engages all stakeholders, including the public, enabling discussions on the project right from the outset. Projects that embrace the participatory approach are likely to be implemented more quickly.

Citizens' Assemblies

Citizens' Assemblies are a form of deliberative democracy, wherein citizens create well-informed recommendations for public administration bodies, thereby facilitating public involvement in decision-making processes. They are commonly used to address issues that have reached an impasse and face challenges in gathering unified political and public support.
