English abstract:
Participation is a much discussed concept in the fields of urban planning, architecture, urban design and many other fields.

In the HORIZON 2020 project SUNRISE, participation is one of the key concepts to develop, implement, assess and facilitate learning about new ways to address common mobility challenges at the neighbourhood level. SUNRISE´s objective is to contribute to sustainable urban development by stimulating innovative, participatory processes and problem solutions in neighbourhoods in the field of new mobility concepts and new forms of mobility. Towards this aim, six cities (Bremen, Budapest, Jerusalem, Malmö, Southend on Sea, Thessaloniki) will foster collaborative processes in specific neighbourhoods as "Neighbourhood Mobility Labs" with the explicit mandate to implement innovative solutions for and with their residents, stakeholders etc..

All SUNRISE activities are structured along the phases of the innovation chain and build up on co-creation (Co-identification and co-validation of mobility problems; Co-development and co-selection of solutions; Co implementation of solutions; Co-evaluation; Co-learning and uptake). Along these phases the SUNRISE action neighbourhoods combine a blend of proven online and face-to-face participation techniques (i.e. digital problem mapping, digital problem discussion tools, co-design workshops, thematic walks etc.) and will establish longer-term collaborative forums to bring together citizens, stakeholders and policy-makers to learn how to address urban challenges in neighbourhoods and cities in transitions.

This contribution gives an overview of six various co-creation processes for co-identification, co-planning and co- implementing sustainable mobility solutions on the neighbourhood level, and discusses the advantages and disadvantages of online and offline participation tools. Main questions are: How can these tools enhance the co-creation processes? To what extent can these tools help people, communities and policy-makers to 'learn' about the problems or to develop solutions on the neighbourhood level?
