Participatory social planning connotes the participatory planning paradigm, but with a twist.
Participatory Social Planning is a methodological approach for critical reflection, strategic solutions, and creative answers towards social inclusion of young, marginalized people. In a broader sense the social dimension emphasizes involving groups of citizens in the social planning process bringing with them their experiences and lifeworld.
Co-creating this model has been a learning experience and an expansion of knowledge and repertoires of practice for professionals, welfare officials, NGOs, policy makers, educators, and researchers in relation to understanding, recognizing, and responding to the complex social problems that marginalized young people have to face.
Each country contributes to the model with different approaches. You will find a more thorough reflection on the national research under each tab. Also you will find the techniques used in the research elaborated under urban methods.
