Public participation and stakeholder engagement

HOW CAN YOU GET INVOLVED? 

Local residents, business owners, people working in the area and others frequenting the place have their own unique experience of Florenc and its surroundings. They are aware of the values and problems of the place, which may be perceived differently by each demographic group. 

You can influence the results of the competition in two phases. In spring, we collected people’s perceptions of the values and problems of today’s Florenc. These were provided to the competition teams. In autumn,
a public consultation of the competition proposals will take place before the final meeting of the competition jury.
