Expeditio took part in an international symposium entitled "Shaping Cities - International Symposium of European Organizations Operating in Space City" which took place in Prague 22-23. May 2012.The symposium asks what the nonprofit organizations are today and questions their role in the creation of city space.
Are they nonelected groups of interest promoting their own interpretation of public good? Or do they represent a litmus paper of the level of democracy in the society?
Invited organizations transform the city space on different levels – from local to the whole-city projects, with a narrow or global point of view.
On the ground of this symposium a documentation of such organizations from whole Europe will take place. The creation of a unifying web database will enable to have an overview of the status quo, but mainly to have a mutual interconnection among the organizations with similar aims and sharing of their experiences.
