Digital platform for citizen participation

Belgium

Short presentation

Digital platform allowing to reach a large public within a territory and to report proposals / issues / realities closer to the territories.

Goals

Offering a digital platform for citizen participation to rural communities.

Contexte (territory issues, targeted audience)

Territory of Wallonia and more particularly the rural communes in rural development (130) thanks to the services of the Fondation rurale de Wallonie (FRW)

Actions implemented

The rural communes can, in consultation with the FRW development agents, use it to consult their population within the framework of the rural development operation: during information-consultation or thematic working groups, at the beginning of the operation or for specific projects during the implementation of the Communal Rural Development Programme (PCDR).

The platform has the ambition to widen the audience of citizen consultations by reaching a public less present in village meetings. A complementary tool to the field meetings and which allows the consultations to be more representative of its population (age, sex, profession, ...).

Points of vigilance, difficulties to pass through, success factors

Highlights:
- opportunities to participate in consultations without having to travel
- broader and more representative consultations of the population
On this online platform, you can:
>> be inspired by all the ideas published in the active consultations,
>> interact by taking part in the consultation in progress in your commune,
>> create an account to be notified when your commune will launch a call for ideas!

- Evolutions / perspectives: evolution of the tool according to the consultations (flexibility of the tool).

Project very easily transposable.
