The third Campus Day of the Leibniz Science Campus - Postdigital Participation (LSC PdP) in Braunschweig took place in 2021. Within the framework of an interactive Participation Week, the concept of participation was examined from different perspectives. How can participation be enhanced? How can participatory research and development processes be designed? What could be long-term impacts of the new forms of post-digital participation/exclusion that have been established in virtual spaces since 2020? These are just some of the questions that have become increasingly visible as elementary challenges for society and research since the beginning of the corona pandemic. The event aimed at both expert discourse and exchange with the non-scientific public.
The Participation Week gave practice partners, interested members of the public, and other interaction groups the opportunity to directly engage in the LWC PdP project work. The interactive sessions was offered at different times from November 22-25, 2021.
The Campus Day took place on November 26, 2021, at the end of the Participation Week. It aimed at an exchange between campus members, other scientists and the interested public about participation (e.g. concepts, research designs, results and theories).
