#openheritage Getting partners involved and excited about participatory processes
A participatory process is a sequence of participatory activities (e.g. first filling out a survey, then making proposals, discussing them in face-to-face or virtual meetings, and finally prioritizing them) with the aim of defining and making a decision on a specific topic.
Examples of participatory processes are: a process of electing committee members (where candidatures are first presented, then debated and finally a candidacy is chosen), participatory budgets (where proposals are made, valued economically and voted on with the money available), a strategic planning process, the collaborative drafting of a regulation or norm, the design of an urban space or the production of a public policy plan.
A progressive engagement strategy was launched for partners to familiarize themselves and get involved with participating on our online platform.
What is the ´Progressive Engagement Phase´?
Through this phase OH partners have the opportunity, understand and learn the platform by heart. As participants they are able understand what the user experience and facilitate the use of the platform within the communities they work with.
What is expected from OH partners?
OH partners will be expected to go through the steps featured below, each of the 6 STEPS or tasks can also be seen here.
