nexus designs and moderates participative processes: from complex citizen participation projects to multi-stakeholder formats. We design decision-making processes, focusing on transparent communication, active cooperation and sustainable consensus.
nexus investigates how active citizenship and the participation of different actors can change social development. Therefore we realize application-oriented and practical research projects.
nexus advises actors from politics and administration, develops concepts and strategies and evaluates processes and programmes. We optimise civil society infrastructures and services through individual solutions. Comprehensive needs analyses are the base for this.
nexus works inter- and transdisciplinarily, locally, nationally and internationally on the topics of democracy and participation, sustainability, regional development, digitalization and health.
The nexus Institute is located in the “Villa Morgenroth”, one of the most beautiful Houses in Dahlem, built in 1911 for the physician Julius Morgenroth (1871-1924), involved in the development of chemotherapy. The villa with its generous layout, a garden hall with restaurant, bar area and park-like garden offers the right space for diverse discourses.
