collage-DSAThe Digital Cities Agenda (DSA) was initiated to foster knowledge and practice sharing amongst Dutch cities about what works and doesn’t when interacting online/digitally. This particular session(Dutch), organized by the DSA and Corline van Es, was aimed at finding out based on what means (offline&online) well weighed communication/policy decisions can be made. Specifically based on (zooming in on) the needs of different people involved. Who cares? co-designed and facilitated a process that, in a designerly way, tried to identify proper ways of addressing and involving people (internal and external) effectively in public initiatives. Focussing not so much on solutions as well as coming up with the right questions and using knowledge and information effectively to help map out potential approaches.
