The ENLARGE gamebook on participatory processes in the sustainable energy field is travelling all over Europe, collecting amazing responses and suggestions for improvement.

This book, which is the main output of the ENLARGE project, is intended to be a living tool for all communities wishing to boost participatory governance and to achieve better results in collaborative processes in the field of sustainable energy.

Why did ENLARGE produce a “Choose Your Own Adventure” book, instead of a more traditional set of recommendations? Because we are aware that there is no a “model” of good participation. However, we can have better policy-making when successful collaborative practices are in place.

Depending on the specific context, different sequences of events and choices can favour or hinder the outcome of a participatory process. The CYOA book will illustrate some of the paths towards different decision-making results.

ENLARGE’s dissemination events have been organized all over the European Union – from Italy to Belgium, from Malta to Ireland, from Greece to Slovenia, up to the white nights of Estonia.

The audience’s feedback, collected during all events, are extremely positive and highlight that ENLARGE gamebook is welcomed as an innovative and operational instrument.

After its fine-tuning based on comments by experts and practitioners, the CYOA book is now available in English – start your adventure now (Google Chrome recommended)! It will be soon available also in Italian, French, and Estonian.
