Typically, this relates to situations in which the personal interest of an individual or organization might adversely affect a duty owed to make decisions for the benefit of a third party.

Theory reflection

We have seen so far that ‘democracy’ is a complex concept including at least three different sets of values drawing in different directions. Self-determination focuses on the promotion of free scope for autonomous individuals. Codetermination demands equal consideration or access to infuence on common decisions. Respect for argument stresses the need to justify wishes and requests with reasons one expects to be acceptable to all. The frst part of the Demorcy is the quest for democracy, followed by various methods that may be applied in order to make landscape decisions more democratic. We used this Method as a means of involving stakeholders in the democratic process of defning goals and objectives in local landscapes.


Phase B: Democratic Landscape Analysis and Assessment

The Scene in your Story of Analysis

The Story of Analysis

Reflect on your Story of Analysis

Landscape analysis
by hearing the stories we can reach a better understanding of landscape. People mostly talk about needs, wanting and desires.

  • stakeholder mapping.
  • Data collection.
  • Data analysis.

Phase C: Collaborative Visioning and Goal Setting

The Scene in your Story of Visioning

1- Landscape democracy challenge:
Lack of green spaces and recreational areas in Altstadt of Freising where the lively historic center of the cathedral city is located between Domberg and Weihenstephaner Berg.
The challenge here is to add new landscape value to the old and historical space

problem-statement based on the landscape evaluation and assessment

  • Attractive landscape elements challenge
  • Social & Culture Identity Challenge
  • Accessibility Challenge

The Actors in your Story of Visioning

1. Local Leadership- Development Partners: will be overseeing the project with assistance

2. Steering Committee-business people: provide valuable insight throughout the planning process.

3. Public-Input from the community drives the plan’s vision and initiatives.

The process is built extensively on public and stakeholder involvement. We asked community residents and stakeholders:

  • “What are your ideas for the future?”
  • “What kind of community do you want to be part of?”

The answers to these questions became the foundation of the vision.

The Story of Visioning

The main points most of the stakeholders agreed on are the lack of sitting areas and no trees in the whole area.

The main goals

  • Providing more sitting areas.
  • Planting enough trees to provide shade for the sitting areas and to reduce the heat island effect.

Reflect on your Story of Visioning

The values, attitudes and needs should be considered in formulating goals, to determine useful and achievable goals.

It can be written by answering the following questions:

  • what do (target group, sector, etc.) needs? 
  • Why is it needed – for what purpose?
  • What type of capacity is needed in order to achieve the purpose?

Phase D: Collaborative Design, Transformation and Planning

Your Prototyping Action

  • Exhibitions Events, games for kids, snacks, Music, dancing

identify if people are happy with present scenario of the street.

identify the views, needs, desires of people to make Aldstadt a better place.

realize if our visions and our goals match the people’s need /views / desires.

The Evolution of Your Prototyping Action

  • Preparing creative tools for open discussion
  • Not only limited workshops but also opening permanent connection fields to share different ideas
  • Arranging meetings to present and advocate for their added ideas
  • Organizing final workshops to prioritize the proposed ideas

Based on all previous actions we come up with final results to develop our prototype with a possibility for extending the sustainable development to the surrounding districts

The Plan Behind Your Prototyping Action

Step 1: Requirements gathering and analysis. A prototyping model starts with requirement analysis. ...
Step 2: Quick design. ...
Step 3: Build a Prototype. ...
Step 4: Initial user evaluation. ...
Step 5: Refining prototype. ...
Step 6: Implementation.

The Realization of Your Prototyping Action

  • What happened, who was there and what was the atmosphere like among the participants?
  • Choosing the right type of prototype
  • Setting concrete goals: Having a clear idea
  • Using the right tools
  • Taking actions! Design Thinking is all about generating ideas and testing them, so prototype as and when weneed to.

Reflect on Your Prototyping Action

  • In the end, what change did the intervention create? How would you adjust it to be more effective if you did it again? Consider what it means to be successful, what indicators would you use to measure success in this endeavor? Most importantly, how did your intervention reflect the material in the Phase D lectures?

Prototypes come in all different Projects and sizes, ranging from simple models to fully functional, interactive prototypes.
We’ll look at some of the different types of prototype.

  • Participation is a power of change
  • Timely creative workshops
  • increased economic value of shops , restaurants
  • multiple use of open spacesand facilities

Phase E: Collaborative Evaluation and Future Agendas

Collaborative Evaluation and Landscape Democracy Reflection

  • Reiterate your landscape democracy challenge, by listing the relevant UN Sustainable Development Goals. How has the your work with he community this far affect your perceptions of theses goals in regards to the LD challenge? How has your team, or community partner, modified these goals over the course of this course?’'

SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOAL 11 Make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable

Challange: Lack of green spaces and recreational areas in Altstadt of Freising where the lively historic center of the cathedral city is located between Domberg and Weihenstephaner Berg.
This layout of Altstadt from 1159 has been largely preserved to this day. The challenge here is to add new landscape value to the old and historical space

The Actors in your Collaborative Evaluation

The evaluation of modeling processes for years has focused on assessing the outcome of modeling, while the process of modeling itself hardly has been subject of examination. in our experience, with rising interest in collaborative conceptual modeling approaches, the process of modeling has gained more attention.

Identify 20-30 people from all these groups (Financial, public, governmental and NGOs group) and who are living in Altstadt in Freising and interested in improving their urban environment. We have to make sure that working group includes women, kids, youth, older people and people with disabilities to represent all members of the society. They will participate in prototyping and evaluation process

Reflection of the Online Seminar

  • ’'How did the pandemic affect learning ?

  • what we liked the most from learning methods in that course is working with MURAL
  • It affect on teamwork negatively
  • Logic and clear sequence of course phases which helps us a lot to fully understand what to first and what we needs and how to apply our ideas.

Reflection of the Living Lab Process

The COVID-19 crisis has impacted cities throughout the world. The disease’s worst effects are closely linked with urban areas, where death rates tend to be higher because of a complex combination of factors, including population density, national and international connectivity and public health response. major urban areas have higher death rates than other types of settlement, and city size has also been found to play an important part in determining infection rates. so, for a period of time, the Lab could not have activities to communicate with people.

Your Living Lab Code of Conduct

Process Reflection

  • that would be valuable if we would be able to look back and forth in the process and make necessary additions/ subtractions in concept
  • we learned that a landscape project in Design thining should being organized , focusing more on details and accepting opinion difference
  • It was clear in the process that we need a broad knowledge and understanding of the rights, needs and desires of all citizens as well as an understanding of forms of public spaces to develop our idea about changes.
  • during the project we undrestood that it is necessary to respect the power of community in making the environmental change and our role as a landscape planner towards the community is to offer different and creative ways for public participation in the environmental change process
