New kinds of problems, "wicked problems", lead to increasing demands on politicians at the local level. Tradi-tional as well as innovative forms of citizen participation are increasingly used as a solution. The project Römer-land Carnuntum 2040 pursues with the “Zukunftsrat” a regional, transdisciplinary approach to involve stake-holders in the development of a regional vision for the future. Many of the mayors are reluctant to participate. Interviews show that they have a rather traditional understanding of citizen participation, which, in their opinion, should be guided by the political level to ensure success. This understanding can be assigned to the consultative level of the ladder of participation from Arnstein (1969). The role understanding of the mayors is diverse, either officially directing the process, observing or flexible. Reasons for non-participation are (i) internal: no perceived relevance, possibility of implementation. (ii) external: lack of time, and (iii) procedural reasons: Corona-related online events and lack of perceived progress.
