Abstract
The body of design knowledge surrounding information systems aimed at facilitating participation is presently limited and primarily focuses on top-down approaches. In response to this shortcoming, we propose a bottom-up methodology through the development of a Participation Companion that supports people in their participation process and could be a solution to motivate people to participate. Especially the lack of motivation plays an important role in participation, which is why in an earlier study, we followed a very creative, participatory, and user-centered approach to instantiate a prototype in three stages and then extracting five reflective design principles. Building on this foundation, we created Mika, our prototype, which aims to promote user engagement and participation.
