Participation in the Community Recovery Projects: Principles, Values, Processes
Conference Room of the Center for Urban History
Welcome to the discussion "Participation in the Community Recovery Projects: Principles, Values, Processes" with Hanna Bondar, Ivan Verbytsky, Daryna Mendela, Maksym Terletsky.
Why are participatory processes in the discussion of recovery projects mandatory for communities? What potential challenges will communities face today and in the future on the way to recovery related to the involvement of local actors? What values and principles should underpin public participation in recovery projects? What are the key questions we need to answer before we start implementing public participation processes? We will try to answer these and other questions during the discussion.
This is the first meeting as part of the series of public events "Recovery of Ukraine: Who May Have the Right to Participate?" which aims to create a platform for sharing experience in implementing recovery projects in communities with the involvement of local citizens and actors. "Recovery", in our understanding, is a broad framework for urban transformation aimed to adapt to changes, physical reconstruction, renovation or the construction of new housing, social and engineering infrastructure, development of a strategic vision for the spatial development of community territories affected by the war in Ukraine.
