Windmills on land, increasing the price of gas or a meat tax? What does Dutch society think about Dutch climate policy? This is what researchers from TU Delft and Utrecht University were wondering. Populytics helped them set up a consultation on our platform Wevaluate. It attracted a lot of attention, with more than ten thousand Dutch people participating!
The eight cooperating municipalities of Foodvalley Region in the Netherlands wanted to involve their residents in the development of the Regional Energy Strategy. Although individual residents may not normally be involved in this decision, their interests should be taken into account. Which is why Foodvalley Region chose to consult residents and sought a partnership with the Dutch Platform for Public Policy, Public Mediation and Populytics. Our consultation yielded nearly 1800 participants and over 5000 motivations, ideas and arguments.
Súdwest-Fryslân, a municipality in the Netherlands, wants to generate half of its own energy sustainably by 2030. Súdwest-Fryslân wanted to know what was important to its inhabitants in this regard. The municipality invited its citizens to share their thoughts through our platform Wevaluate. A total of 1,376 residents participated, giving their opinions on the future sustainable energy strategy in Súdwest-Fryslân.
