The 16th CIVITAS Insight concerns the involvement and participation of citizens and stakeholders in the field of sustainable urban mobility, as it is necessary to address their actual needs and to obtain public legitimacy.
New information and communication technologies have started to shift citizen participation methods more towards online environments. We are entering an era of Participation 2.0.
Today, there is no escaping the widespread adoption of social media. Similar to the rise of the personal computer, mobile phones and the internet, the ascent of social media is historic and transformative in influencing the way people think, behave and communicate.
In few other places is this transformation more distinct and revolutionary than in the use of Participation 2.0 in government administration.
