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.

The House of Women is a space for meeting, debate and reflection of women, to be able to influence policies, programs and projects that aim to advance towards real and effective equality of women and men in all areas of life .
This is an example of how a process of this nature has been carried out by a real City (Pamplona, Spain).

This process wants to create a safe space for women and to choose its headquarters.
The process is structured in 6 phases, from the creation of the working group to the execution of the result of the participatory process.
The first 2 phases are for debate, in physical spaces (and maybe online), then, a proposal phase starts, where citizens will upload their proposals and vote for the ones they prefer. Next phases will generate a document of work, further debates and conclusions and a period for report back about the execution.
This is a living process, It is possible that the roadmap changes if the results of the participatory process says so.
