Urbinsight’s participatory mapping and planning processes provides engaged cities and citizens with the necessary tools and technology to affect the resiliency and sustainability of their cities and settlements in a positive way.
The Ecocompass trains municipalities, schools and community groups on participatory research methods, real-time geodata collection and information networks.
The Platform weaves together municipal open datasets with bottom-up datasets revealing opportunities based on ecocity indicators at the levels of individual, household, neighborhood, and city.
We are changing the role of citizen from a passive actor who just consumes the information and just complains about the things he doesn’t like to somebody who takes over and owns his own environments.
The experiences and expertise exchanged added a lot for the students to gain exposure as well as to the Ecocity Builders team who are seeing what is happening in different parts of the world.
