pspeParticipatory Spatial Planning in Europe

European project aiming to support the sharing of knowledge within the European Union. The overall objective of the PSPE project is to improve spatial information exchange in participatory regional planning through renewed interactive approaches that make use of geo-visualization. It will furthermore re-enforce community involvement and responsibility of citizens and governments and improve public support concerning sustainable regional development.

Currently these interactive approaches are lacking, unknown and un(der)developed in spatial planning. The added value of this project is to consolidate existing knowledge and know-how, and to accelerate the transfer and renewal of geo-visualization and communication approaches. The approaches developed will be practical and accessible in diverse regional and cultural settings. This will result in an effective interaction between the different public and private stakeholders in decision-making processes within the territories of the partners.
