The final event of the scenario process on the future of city centres in South Westphalia was held at the end of June. The process was supported by the University of Applied Sciences Südwestfalen, the Competence Center E-Commerce and the City Lab Südwestfalen. A participatory process with two large workshops was planned for spring 2020. Due to the corona pandemic, the procedure was modified at short notice, so that the scenarios were created in several online workshops. In this process, the various stakeholders from over 20 municipalities contributed their heterogeneous perspectives and points of view, thus contributing significantly to the breadth of the results.
