Aim of the workshop

  • The aim of this workshop is to show how anthropology is both relevant and crucial in citizen-focused city development. We aim to provide the participants with valuable insight in practical approaches to the field, as well as illustrating beneficial methodical tools for succeeding with a human-centred placemaking/city development.

Content

  • We will start out with establishing a framework for the workshop, by presenting a few relevant cases on how we work with citizens in urban development projects. Then we will work with actual methods for practical citizen involvement and social (re)generation. Based on the group’s experiences with the methods we will have a group discussion on: Why does the world need anthropologists in practical citizen involvement and urban development projects? What are our strengths outside of academic work? How can the practical use of anthropology strengthen our science?

Preparations

  • No preparations needed
