There has been a citizen engagement process for the Integrated District Development Concept (IDDC) in 2012 and following years. During this previous process multipliers and networks were addressed and gained as support. The participation was relatively low in the IDDC citizen engagement process. This was probably due to the fact that the area’s residents are very diverse (see target groups).
The citizen and stakeholder engagement process was designed for the following target groups:
- Residents of the project area - some are rather young, socially deprived and of many different ethnic backgrounds and some are elderly, German, middle class residents that have been there already for decades
- Other interested citizens
- Local businesspeople, social and cultural communities / initiatives and representatives of institutions in the project area
- Owners of real estate in the project area (mostly owner communities [WEGs])
- Local policy makers
- Local opinion leaders
The citizen and stakeholder engagement process needs to start before tenderings for the smart solutions are issued, because they should incorporate the results of the process.
The Munich Strategy is divided into three different lines: mobility (e-mobility), technology (smart data) and energy (holistic refurbishment and District Heating & Renewable energy).
In each of the three lines there is a sensitisation phase in which basic knowledge is transferred to the target group, by making it interesting and a Workshop phase, where the smart solutions should be co-created with citizens and stakeholders
