A participatory process is a sequence of participatory activities (e.g. first filling out a survey, then making proposals, discussing them in face-to-face or virtual meetings, and finally prioritizing them) with the aim of defining and making a decision on a specific topic.
Examples of participatory processes are: a process of electing committee members (where candidatures are first presented, then debated and finally a candidacy is chosen), participatory budgets (where proposals are made, valued economically and voted on with the money available), a strategic planning process, the collaborative drafting of a regulation or norm, the design of an urban space or the production of a public policy plan.
Current developments around Hof Prädikow
At Hof Prädikow modern working meets rural living. In the synthesis of these supposed opposites, new life and work designs emerge. These are the core of Hof Prädikow's vision. Digital work culture and diverse social exchange are to go hand in hand here with proximity to nature and handicraft work. We want to overcome the infrastructural limitations of rural life with the help of digital and social solutions and at the same time leave behind the disadvantages of fast-moving urban life. Life in the countryside should be more attractive in the long term than in the city and Hof Prädikow wants to be a pioneer on this path.
