Results from the first dialogue phase

In order to structure the 1,200 answers to the 4 questions from the first dialogue phase, the team at #gutlebendigital used the 10 topics from the quality of life discourse (German). In addition, two fundamental topics became visible (see below). In 11 of these 12 evaluation fields

  1. the image of the desirable future that emerged from the answers was summarized,
  2. possible indicators with which the progress to this goal can be measured were found,
  3. recommendations for action for various groups were developed that are in line with the desired future and
  4. concrete projects are presented, which can make the desirable future more likely.

For each topic, we publish a word cloud of the German terms used as well as a mind map, which helped the evaluation team in structuring the contents.

All these interim results are compiled in this summary document in English.

The second dialogue phase

Starting in August 2018, we are presenting these interim results online, at events and in bilateral conversations together with four new questions: Is the description of the desirable future coherent, or are important aspects missing? Do the proposed indicators make sense and are they perhaps already available? Do the recommendations for action fit the visions or are important points missing? Are there any other concrete projects that fit the visions?

You have the possibility to answer these four questions for each of the 11 topics outlined in our summary document. We look forward to your observations and additions via e-mail to
