Democracy has to reconcile the often competing forces of public planning, participation and decision-making. Agile tools and processes help to allow enough space for different interests and perspectives to be aired, enabling them to be fairly reconciled, in turn yielding useable results. That’s what we work towards in our Berlin and Hamburg offices.
Our projects span a broad spectrum, from a public participation platform in Togo to prize-winning online participation in spatial planning, via the public consultation concept for the German commission on the storage of highly radioactive materials.
