*2013 I Scenario on political participation I Honours Programme
The honours programme at TU Delft allowed to embark on a journey detached from regular studies. Starting point had been questions like ‘How to support or change political participation through design?’ and ‘How democracy will develop in the digital age?’ Multiple projects have been executed throughout the programme.
In one of the projects a scenario was developed to paint a picture of future political participation. Including a historical derivation and choosing a set of core trends the scenario describes a local community that has established a variety of interactions that reinterpret the meaning of ‘active citizenship’. The scenario is supposed to inspire, spark debates and open a space to conceptualise future products.
