Co-Creating of Inclusive and Digital Mediated Public Spaces

Activity: Participating in or organising an eventParticipation in workshop, seminar, course


In the Workshop Co-Creating of Inclusive and Mediated Public Spaces, participants explored the concept of inclusiveness and co-creation of public spaces as a means of citizen empowerment and user oriented design, towards maximising the response to user needs. In particular, participants reflected on the interactions between people, places, and technology in creating open spaces mashed-up with technology and will investigate how to make use of the opportunities opened up digital technologies to engage and activate citizens around the public spaces in urban areas.

No doubt, digital technologies have greatly changed society and the way people communicate and interact. In turn, digital technologies enable people to capture and share personal experiences in new ways that create new forms of learning, gathering, and communicating across multiple contexts.

This workshop served two fold objectives:
1) introduce the issues of CyberParks to specific stakeholders, and
2) gain insights about how decisions in city councils are taken that concerns public spaces and ICT strategies by setting the topic citizen's participation in the centre of discussion.
