Involving residents in the design of buildings and urban spaces is a new standard of urban planning. Projects that don't consider the needs and problems of the residents are not viable. Participatory practices are applied all over the world, various engagement approaches and techniques are being developed: public hearings, seminars, game formats. Russian and international experts will use their case studies from different cities across Russia and in the world to examine how to define the boundaries of engagement, how to work with people's needs and choose the most valuable ones for implementation.
