SUNRISE methodology

SUNRISE uses several methods based on different strategies for mobilisation and participation.

  • Quantitative and qualitative methods of co-collecting and co-analysing information.
  • Action research – researchers and consultants are not restricted to analysis but they take part to the co-processes of change.
  • Transdisciplinary and involvement of urban and regional stakeholders of politics, administration and private, organised and non-organised citizens.
  • Deployment of “citizen science” – specific forms of the involvement of organised and non-organised citizens for the first time in the field of urban development and mobility behavioural change
  • The use of the internet (mobile and stationary) as tool for interactive, more inclusive and more transparent participation processes
  • To use of internet as a tool to mobilise “crowd wisdom”, collective intelligence and creativity
