TESEV started the “Supporting Sustainable Cities” project in March 2016 in partnership with the Friedrich Naumann Foundation in Turkey. This project focuses on e-participation as the concept gathering three key components of sustainable city:  governance, technology, and communities.

Experts train local governments, civil society representatives, and unorganized citizens on sustainability, sustainable city, and e-participation on three selected cities. Trainings are conducted with innovative and participatory methods.  Sustainable Development Goals (Global Goals) are the framework for both conceptual and practical parts of the trainings. Participants, following the conceptual training, collaboratively plan an e-participation practice to find solutions for local challenges to reach global goals in their local.

Following the workshops, experts will draft a report on sustainable cities in Turkey based on the solutions and practices during this project. This report will be presented and discussed  in a round-table meeting with larger audiences.

Local governments and civil society will gain opportunities to evolve towards sustainable cities, not only with new conceptual knowledge but also with collaborative practical work over e-participation. They will thus be the pioneers in expanding the concept and practice of sustainable city.
