3-13 JUL 2018 | International Summer School “Concepts and Tools to Engage in Knowledge Co-Production and Public Participation”


The SOCIUS (CSG/ISEG) organizes, together with Lisode – Lien Social et Décision, the third editions of the International Summer School on concepts and tools for the co-production of knowledge and public participation, to be held from 9 to 13 July 2018, in Montpellier, France.

The International Summer School on Concepts and tools to engage in knowledge co-production and public participation is a 5-day interactive training course designed and organized by a small international team of experts – researchers and practitioners of participatory approaches. The training is based on “learning by doing” principle that makes it possible for the participants to test what they learn on-the-spot and get immediate feedback. Our international participants co-construct their own training, contributing with unique content (their own case studies) and their personal styles and personalities.

The course will be taught in English.

Target Public:
The training is meant for people (students, researchers, consultants, public sector employees) interested in developing or improving knowledge and skills in participatory methods to engage stakeholders in knowledge co-production through public participation.
