Participation and dialogue

The open communication of goals, motivations and measures, as well the attempt to include all involved parties from the very start, creates a solid foundation for successful cooperation before, during and after an event. Forming collaborations with local groups and citizens’ action committees can facilitate a wise and authentic implementation of environmental measures.
