The Participation Network is a collective of researchers, designers, planners, and community activists who are dedicated to the principles of collaboration.

Participatory research and design approaches create opportunities for more inclusive decision-making processes engaging users and other stakeholders; values knowledge created through collaboration and in action; starts with social concerns and personal experiences; and reconsiders the value of research and design processes as a vehicle for social change.Grounded upon the ongoing commitment to the theory and practice of participation in design and research, the Participation Network seeks to create a space for critical reflection and open dialogue on shared experiences and new directions in this field.
