Participation Factory is a social enterprise that mainstreams participation and data-driven approaches into governance and process design. The core of our work is achieving a better quality of life for all and creating an environment for development through better data and meaningful stakeholder engagement. With more than 200 projects on 4 continents designed, consulted, or managed by our team of experts, we help our clients to set up a process that considers both local context and international best practices tested anywhere from New York City, the US to New Delhi, India.
Our vision is to foster an environment of governance and decision-making based on the inclusion of all parts of the society and comprehensive utilization of data available. We strongly believe that a community that runs on a deep understanding of the needs and preferences of all is the one that will continuously increase the quality of life of its members and will produce the most effective and sustainable solutions to any old and new challenges faced by it.
We have successfully helped 12 districts of Prague create a participation infrastructure, and we are currently working with the Ministry of Interior of Slovakia to establish participation coordinators’ teams in 6 regions of Slovakia. We are also engaged in trans-national projects like the Visegrad Youth Participates that support regional actors in mainstreaming School Participatory Budgeting.
