DUST – Democratising jUst Sustainability Transitions
We are excited to announce the launch of our new project “DUST”, which is funded by the European Union’s Research and Innovation Programme, Horizon Europe. The ISOCARP Institute is proud to be a partner in this project, which aims to bring European policies closer to citizens for the future of democracy and civic participation.
DUST will develop and operationalise novel participatory instruments for proactive and strategic citizen engagement in sustainability transitions. It will combine design-led territorial tools with digital tools for citizen deliberation at scale. The project addresses a defining #societal and #democratic #challenge for Europe: to hear the voices of least engaged communities, especially in structurally weak regions dependent on energy-intensive industries, which will be most affected by transitions towards a more sustainable future.
Led by Delft University of Technology, with a highly competent and enthusiastic consortium comprising 13 partner institutions across Europe. The project lasts for three years, starting from Feb. 1st 2023. The ISOCARP Institute is committed to contributing to the project by leading the Communication and Dissemination activities.
If you would like to learn more about DUST or how the project will develop and operationalise, please contact Samir Amir: firstname.lastname@example.org, DUST Project leader at the ISOCARP Institute.
