The ‘common culture’ workshop is an essential participatory and engagement tool because it is the opportunity to involve stakeholders, experts, managers in the project process. It is the first meeting with the identified stakeholder forum. The purpose of this meeting is to share views and knowledge from all perspectives. The number of participant need not be large, but all identified relevant stakeholders should be invited.
It can be done in very different way according to the level of integration of the scientific question and the management questions of the territory. It can only be done after having collected some information or evidence about the subject it is dealing with, in order to share it. Be sure that the elements presented take into account the different points of view of the invited people.
