Digital communication platform enables more "politics of being heard"

For more transparency and participation at eye level, Milla & Partner is to design a digital communication platform for the Verband Region Stuttgart (VRS). Many measures, whether open space protection and recreation, industrial settlement or sustainable mobility, are thought and planned regionally, but decided in the municipalities. Self-assured cities, communities and citizens want and need to be heard and involved in complex decisions. There is often no "right" or "wrong" - the decisions are more the result of a weighing process. To accompany and facilitate the process of opinion making, the new digital application will explain and link complex topics and interrelationships of regional planning and development. The role of citizens, cities and communities is an essential aspect for a strong Stuttgart Region - this is what the leitmotif represents: "No city is an island".
