TCI 2016 Change in Cities, Territories and Spaces

  1. 1. Titel presentatie [Naam, organisatienaam] Working Day - Track: Cities & Competitiveness Understanding the dynamics of territory Frank Waeltring Change in Cities, Territories and Spaces: Identifying Entry Points
  2. 2. Understanding the complex Dynamics of different territorial Spaces Change in Cities, Territories and Spaces: Identifying Entry Points TCI Eindhoven Workshop 10th Nov. 2016 Frank Waeltring www.mesopartner,com
  3. 3. Workshop structure  Introduction (10 min. )  Explanation of the Matrix “4 kinds of spaces” (5 min.)  Energizer “Matrix on the Floor” (10 min.) – Participants position themselves into the quadrants where they are based or working in  Group work 1: (20 min.) What are key characteristics of the different places?  Presentation in the plenary of key findings on pin board (20 min.)  Group work 2: (20 min.)  What are key requirements and ideas for initiatives to promote change in these locations?  Presentation of initiatives in the Plenary on one Panel (15 min. )  Final reflection in the Plenary about the workshop outcome (10 min.)
  4. 4. 4 Context matters! Different complex situations require different entry points for support. Do we understand the complex context of the city/space?
  5. 5. 5 Context considerations  Context matters in regions and locations !  Context differs in spaces ! – Different realities – Different complex interrelations between people – Different behaviour patterns – Different belief systems – Different boundaries of change – Different opportunities for change
  6. 6. 6 Questions  What are the characteristics of different territories or spaces? – What are dominant belief systems? – What are dominant patterns of behaviour? – Who are outliers in the system who do things differently?  What are the requirements to promote change in these different spaces? – e.g. „With whom to start and whom to involve?“ – e.g. „Where to focus on?“  Entry points for change? – concrete short-term initiatives? – What could be safe to fail experiments?
  7. 7. 7 Matrix of the 4 kinds of spaces  Simplified model to – reflect on different characteristics – Identify different dynamics and intervention requirements – Promote the reflection on targeted initiatives for change
  8. 8. Different interventions are required in different environments ! Strong physical infrastructure and supporting institutions Sustained growth Stagnation or Decline Declining territory Thriving territory Marginalised territory Emerging territory Weak physical infrastructure and supporting institutions Different complex environments require different approaches! One-fits all solutions will not tackle key challenges !
  9. 9. Thank you for the rich reflection!
