Shrinking areas: front-runners in innovative citizen participation


EUKN Annual Conference 2012

Shrinking areas: front-runners in innovative citizen participation

Essen, Germany: 7 December 2012

On the 7th of December 2012, EUKN’s 5th annual conference will take place in Essen, Germany. The conference will be organised in close cooperation with the Ruhr Regional Association and the Dutch Ministry of the Interior and Kingdom Relations.
The EUKN conference is built around an interactive exchange on citizen participation in shrinking urban areas. To overcome the consequences of shrinkage, joint action is needed. Local authorities need to cooperate with citizens to find ways to maintain the quality of life in their city or town.

EUKN will present innovative examples of citizen participation with regard to their daily life in shrinking areas: health, education, employment, mobility, shopping and sports. Interactive on-site debates are an important part of the conference. They provide a deeper insight in successful policy approaches and offer insight into participatory process facilitated by local authorities.
