What can we help you with?

Designing a participation process

We not only carry out consultations, but also ensure they are properly embedded in decision-making and participation processes. We work with you to apply participatory approaches so that needs of government, citizens and stakeholders are met.

Our experience includes:

  • Organising deliberative sessions.
  • Combining mini- and maxi-publics. For example, writing advice based on a consultation together with a citizens’ forum.
  • Involving many and diverse stakeholders through joint design sessions.

No one participation process is the same. There are multiple goals you may want to pursue. Do you want to know the preferences of a representative group of citizens? Is inclusiveness important to you? What kind of insights should a participation process provide to best assist you? Is increasing citizen understanding of government choices a primary goal? Our participation designers explore the goals you want to achieve and design a participation trajectory that is fit for purpose.

Conducting consultations

We design and organise large-scale consultations with thousands of people. Participants can experience and give their opinion on a policy dilemma. We advise which method is most appropriate to suit the needs of civil servants, citizens and stakeholders. For more information on the different methods, check out our frequently asked questions.


  • We help formulate the right questions to ask to your clients or residents.
  • We help structure the information the participants need to experience the policy dilemma, as well as providing an instructional animation video to guide them
  • We design the public consultation through an online platform
  • We make the consultation accessible via its own URL and provide technical support
  • We analyze the results and deliver them to you in a detailed report

Additionally, we can provide services such as: supervision of stakeholder sessions, telephone helpdesk for participants, versions for non-native or low-literacy speakers, and more.

Our methodology

The core of Wevaluate’s scientific methodology is that putting the citizen in the position of the decision-maker through an online environment:

  • Participants are given information about the decision-maker’s dilemma and experience what choices the decision-maker has to make. In doing so, they get an overview of the consequences of those choices. Participants have to take into account constraints such as; a constrained budget or an obligatory goal. Participants can’t choose everything. Like the actual decision-maker, the participant must make trade-offs.
  • Participants advise the decision-maker, justifying their advice.
  • Wevaluate analyzes the participants’ answers and produces a report that offers the decision-maker (client) detailed insight into the participating populations’ values, preferences and concerns.

Thus, Wevaluate increases mutual empathy between citizen and decision-maker.

Our 3 pillars:

We facilitate participation, evaluation and communication.


Involve citizens, clients or employees in larger management decisions.


Gain insight into values, preferences, and concerns of citizens around policy dilemma.


Provides citizens with information regarding a policy dilemma and (impacts) of policy options in an active and engaging way. And strenghtens mutual understanding between citizens and decision-makers.

Scalable, efficient, representative & scientifically validated

Wevaluate is:

  • Scalable. From a small group of a couple of hundred, to the population of a country , we can facilitate scalable participation.
  • Efficient. You can involve the participating population in just 20-30 minutes, starting from just a few euros per participant.
  • Representative & Inclusive. Our low participation threshold enables a large and diverse group of the population to participate at a time that suits them.
  • Scientifically validated. Our structured method is updated with the most recent scientific research.

Wevaluate is based on a scientific method: the Participatory Value Evaluation (PVE)

The Participatory Value Evaluation (PVE) is an innovative method that allows companies and government to consult citizens on the policy dilemmas of its decision-makers. PVE was developed by researchers from TU Delft, VU Amsterdam and ITS Leeds. More information on this method can be found here.

Populytics brings the scientific method PVE into practice with Wevaluate.
