Community21 is a network and planning toolbox for 21st century communities and neighbourhoods.
A Nominet Trust and Gulkbenkian Foundation funded project developed in collaboration by The University of Brighton and Action in Rural Sussex.
I helped work on the 'Digital Citizenship' part of the project whereby we developed tools to encourage the particpation of young people in having a voice in their community planning and neighbourhood development.
The tools were collaboratively designed (co-designed) by young people with different age and abilitiy ranges in conjunction with digital design and youth engagament researchers.
On the left is an interactive map of Lewes I made while at the 2013 summer workshop we held. The children used a variety of digital recording techniques to express their ideas and issues about Lewes Town into a video format. Videos were then 'attached' to the map using augmented reality.
We found that being able to view peoples ideas and issues through an augmented video format - using a large scale physical map - was a powerful yet also fun way to engage people.
