The state government of Baden-Württemberg has convened a “Bürgerforum Corona” from December 2020 to December 2021. This participation process was initiated by the State Councillor for Civil Society and Civic Participation Gisela Erler. In this forum, 50 randomly selected residents from Baden-Württemberg can speak regularly about the corona time and everyday perceptions. Through the forum, which is expected to be held mostly online, the state councillor wants to learn how people experience the corona time, what feedback, comments, life experiences and changes they make and perceive. The experiences and proposals from this body will be passed on to the state government and will be incorporated into further decision-making.

The nexus Institute designs this process, organises and moderates the event, accompanies the participants and secures the results. It ensures contact with the stakeholder forum and the alliance for participation and supports the press work of the Civil Society Unit and citizen participation. Local cooperation partner is the Centre for Civil Society Development Freiburg (ZZE).
