Missions for sustainability: New approaches for science and society

Mission-orientation as driver for participative Governance – towards sustainable local economic structures

10:30 - 12:00
Session: Mission-orientation in local economic development

Governance of missions at a local level, particularly in the economic development framework, calls upon local economic development agencies to re-think their work in terms of content and organization through new thematic and structural formats. Several concepts (e.g. the 2030 Agenda, the common good economy, the doughnut economics or the circular economy) aim at supporting municipalities in implementing sustainability missions but need to be adapted locally, sometimes with a significant investment of resources. The session will discuss the role of local economic development and the potential of participative governance approaches in implementing political missions based on local challenges.
