  2. 2. 1. RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN COMMUNITIES AND LOCAL AUTHORITIES CIVIC INITIATIVES THROUGH NETWORKS DIFFICULTIES AND TENSIONS POWER AND DECISION MAKING PROCESS (CENTRALIZED, BUROCRATIC, TOP-DOWN) RELATION WITH COMMUNITIES (DEMOCRATIC DÉFICIT, LACK OF TRANSPARENCE , NO ACCOUNTABILITY, CONTROL AND DEPENDENCY) EMERGENCE OF CITY CIVIC ‘SELF ORGANIZED’ MOVEMENTS HELP TO IMPROVE CITIZEN PARTICIPATION BASED ON THE LOCAL COMMUNITIES OUT OF GOVERNEMENT CONTROL THINK & ACT (NOT ONLY (RE)ACT) AMIGOSD’AVENIDA, AVEIRO
  3. 3. although with similar purpose and concern, they have diverse and fragmented practices, without a common language (environment, participatory budgeting, local development, heritage protection), ignoring each other, difficulty in sharing ideas. 1. RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN COMMUNITIES AND LOCAL AUTHORITIES DIFFICULTIES AND TENSIONS CITY CIVIC ‘SELF ORGANIZED’ MOVEMENTS ABILITY, STRENGTH, SKILL, INTELLIGENCE AND WILLINGNESS TO BUILD THREE STRATEGIC NEXUS FERRÃO (2011) combine the time course of structural changes (the crisis), the slow time of learning processes (people, communities and organizations, the slower the more profound are the changes) and the instantaneous time (strength) and ephemeral (weakness) dynamic of civic movements. TIME, SPACE AND PRACTICES TIMEPRACTICESSPACE articulate local concerns with everyday spaces more global (rights and values​​), the risk of confusing the place with localism, or assert themselves as NYMBIES.
  4. 4. increases public attention and accountability for decisions concerning the allocation of public resources. 1. RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN COMMUNITIES AND LOCAL AUTHORITIES NEW CHALLENGES/POTENTIALS INCREASED COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT IN A SELF-ORGANIZATION SOURCE CREATES BENEFITS values different kinds of knowledge and their assertive combination regarding common concerns or interests builds a shared understanding, helps the launch of common goals, and favours a collective action context, especially in an experimental basis. WHAT’S YOUR UTOPIA?
  5. 5. Produce institutional articulation; create conditions for enabling legal, technical and financial tools and implementation 1. RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN COMMUNITIES AND LOCAL AUTHORITIES NEW CHALLENGES/POTENTIALS NEED TO EXPAND OPPORTUNITIES FOR CIVIC SELF-ORGANIZED PARTICIPATION IN DECISION MAKING SEVEN IDEAS Mobilize stakeholder right from the beginning in the purpose and general objectives definition Provide information in a detailed, timely and easy to understand for all involved Make an pedagogic effort to integrate different views, creating open and transparent stages Listen to the actors at critical moments (objectives, theoretical & operative framework and proposals) Promote a consensus building and for alignment of actors means and motivations Support the development of cooperation initiatives in the design of measures and proposals for planning
  6. 6. 1. RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN COMMUNITIES AND LOCAL AUTHORITIES NEW CHALLENGES/POTENTIALS CO-CREATION, CO-FUNDING AND CO-IMPLEMENTATION identify low-cost and high-value community- led initiatives that address concrete problems and develop local potentials in relevant fields. efforts by local communities and social and economic actors in the search for creative solutions to develop local economies actions should be locally based, quick to implement and directed to the public. RISE OF CITIZEN-FUNDED URBAN PROJECTS LOW-COST & HIGH-VALUE URBAN INITIATIVES INVOLVING COMMUNITIES
  7. 7. 2. ROLE OF TECHNOLOGY IN THE RELATION BETWEEN COMMUNITIES AND LOCAL AUTHORITIES TRADITIONAL ROLE notion of ‘egovernment’ a major focus within EU main strategic guidelines research and practice focused on eServices, eAdministration , eDemocracy ana eParticipation considered as a silo, a separate approach to existing organisations and processes
  8. 8. 2. ROLE OF TECHNOLOGY IN THE RELATION BETWEEN COMMUNITIES AND LOCAL AUTHORITIES ICT is not the main cause of wider government changes, but it can be a key enabler and driver participation (with the “e”) is a one-piece of a government’s broader policy of openness, transparency and collaboration ‘NEW’ ROLE SOCIAL MEDIA are creating a way of participation that allow users to be (but also) active contributors and designers in their own right can act as drivers for collective engagement (not only) passive consumers of content and services
  9. 9. 3. A NEW RELEVANT RELATIONSHIP ‘THROUGH’ TECHNOLOGY KEY QUESTIONS BOTTOM-UP, EASY TO USE, ENGAGED PROCESS LINKING LOCAL AUTHORITIES AND COMMUNITIES AND TO PRODUCE A MORE DEMOCRATIC AND PLURALISTIC DECISION MAKING PROCESS CREATIVE USE OF TECHNOLOGY TO DO SO WE NEED ARENAS – DIALOGUE ABOUT COLLECTIVE CONCERNS (VIRTUAL AND FACE-2-FACE); FLOW OF IDEAS FACILITATORS – MEDIATE DIALOGUES (COMMUNITIES , LOCAL AUTHORITIES) AND ALIGN MOTIVATIONS BUILT AND SHARE KNOWLEDGE ABOUT COLLECTIVE CAUSES (CO-PRODUCE, MAP, AVAILABLE) SPREAD THE WORD (CONNECT OUTSIDE AND INSIDE (LURK – PASSIVE PARTICIPANTS)) A LACK OF DIGITAL SKILLS AND EDUCATION CAN BE A CONSTRAINT (ESPECIALLY AMONGST ELDERLY PEOPLE) NEVERTHELESS
