Exploring participatory place branding as an inclusive governance framework for sustainable place development

Project description

Inclusive governance arrangements for sustainable place development

The European Union has long been seeking holistic models of regional development. The EU-funded BRANDSUS project is focusing on the study of inclusive governance arrangements for sustainable place development (SPD). The project aims to develop an innovative mixed-methods comparative case study between Spain and the Netherlands, examining citizen-led governance models. The expectation is that the study's practical application will contribute to a three-pillar approach to sustainable development that encompasses economic growth as well as ensuring social and environmental sustainability, thus providing for positive change. The project's activities will be carried out at the Department of Public Administration and Sociology at Erasmus University Rotterdam.
