Abstract

Local governance transformed from a municipality-centred to a collaborative process between multi-stakeholders, of which the municipality is one of many stakeholders who all have different interests, expertise and resources. Such multi-stakeholder collaboration networks change stakeholders’ roles and responsibilities and require new forms of participation in governance processes.
In this work, we explore how a cross-disciplinary design approach can facilitate multi-stakeholders to ‘practise’ their shifting roles in local governance. We found that this context requires not only shifting roles of multi-stakeholders, but also a transformation of the roles of designers.
