--- Title ---
Learning to give power to the people: competences for students and young professionals
--- Subtitle ---
Teaching skills for participation of the public for
landscape architecture

--- Summary ---
Participation of the public is a hot subject because the public is becoming more aware of their right to influence policies, design, management and maintenance. Many national and local governments have a policy to stimulate public participation. It is a challenge to create learning environments similar to situations in practice, because of the complexity of the participation process and the various factors and actors influencing the situation.
In the VHL landscape programme students learn to build upon the motivation of residents and make use of different toolkits for participation. The education programme is focussed on organising the creative process, and developing imagination and structuring and presenting the outcomes within a given framework and offering various approaches. The landscape architecture course organizes teaching in participation processes and creates, within the context of external projects, a powerful and inspiring learning environment for students to acquire the necessary skills and knowledge. Improving this part of the programme is a contiuous effort.
