A participatory process is a sequence of participatory activities (e.g. first filling out a survey, then making proposals, discussing them in face-to-face or virtual meetings, and finally prioritizing them) with the aim of defining and making a decision on a specific topic.
Examples of participatory processes are: a process of electing committee members (where candidatures are first presented, then debated and finally a candidacy is chosen), participatory budgets (where proposals are made, valued economically and voted on with the money available), a strategic planning process, the collaborative drafting of a regulation or norm, the design of an urban space or the production of a public policy plan.

Torhaus Berlin e.V. invites you on a journey to the future of a collective Hangar X. What if a 5.000 sqm Hangar would be used for our common purpose?
Tempelhof Airport belongs to the city of Berlin and its citizens*. Many parts of the 300.000m2 building are still empty. According to the coalition agreement, the former airport is to be developed in a participatory way: A new district could be created here, which will be developed step-by-step by and for Berliners* in a participatory process.
The previous participatory process (since Nov'17) did not reach many people and was suspended in March 2019. Since then the question of the participation process has been renegotiated.
In August and September 2020, Torhaus Berlin e.V. launched an Open Call and invited Berliners to submit their visions and ideas for a hangar. We want to develop prototypical and collectively sustainable models for a hangar to show that Tempelhof Airport has the potential to become a place for the people of this city. The many different contributions can be viewed, clicked and commented on here at Decidim. Furthermore, further contributions can be uploaded continuously: Hangar X is an organically growing process that should be supported by as many Berliners* as possible.
To further develop the contributions of the Open Call, we have founded a planning workshop. It will take place in the context of the "Living the City" exhibition from September to December 2020. The documentation of these workshops can be found here on the website.
