COMING UP IN 2023

GOVERNANCE & ECONOMY

Here you’ll find all the content relating to the governance and economy sector that will be covered at #SCEWC23.

GOVERNANCE & ECONOMY

Public participation through social accountability tools and collaboration are essential for the development of effective urban agendas, as they can lead to greater public buy-in and better outcomes for the community. Digital technology has paved the way for participatory innovations in different territories, but sometimes their legitimacy is unclear. In parallel, a new economic reality shaped by geopolitical tensions, rising inflation, and high-interest rates are striking citizens, resulting in an unusual level of uncertainty. How can we create successful participatory and transparent governance? How can new economic models address crucial challenges for people and the planet such as social justice and the conservation of resources?
