OOZE is invited to participate in HORIZON EUROPE project, Democratizing jUst Sustainability Transitions (DUST).

jUst Sustainability Transitions (DUST) aims to develop new participatory instruments in sustainability transitions that enhance citizen participation and trust in democratic governance. It's goal is to recognise the voices of least-engaged communities by focusing on regions dependent on energy-intensive industries which will be affected by sustainability transitions.

DUST will combine design-led territorial tools with digital tools for citizen deliberation at scale. The project addresses a defining societal and democratic challenge for Europe, which is to hear the voices of least engaged communities, especially in structurally weak regions dependent on energy-intensive industries, which will be most affected by transitions towards a more sustainable future. Building on the concept of ‘active subsidiarity’, the project will employ an innovative mix of research methods, and experimental citizen participation, to understand the determinants of participation in decision-making on sustainability transitions at different levels of government, and to develop effective policy recommendations for inclusive engagement of civil society.

OOZE is collaborating is a large consortium lead by TU delft and including the University of Strathclyde, the Brandenburgische Technische Universitat Cottbu, the Uniwersytet Ekonomiczny w Katowicach, , The Universitat Zurich, Nordregio, Center for the Study of Democracy, Isocarp Institute center of urban excel, Hela Sverige ska leva Norrbotten, Agentsiya za Regionalno Ikonomichesko Razvitie, Stiftung Wohlfahrtspflege Brandenburg Germany, Porozumienie Zwiazkow Zawodowych "KADRA"
