02.30: Metaverse for citizen dialogue and co-creative processes. Tomas Bendz, Around the corner, Sweden
The consulting company Around the corner has collaborated with Sweco in a project that explored how a virtual citizen dialogue and co-creation process could work. The goal of the project is to improve conversations and meetings between citizens, municipal representatives, and planners regarding plans in community building. Share experiences and lessons learned from the project and learn more about how metaverse can create opportunities for better dialogue and understanding.
02.55: How to facilitate dialogue rather than information in the planning process. Astrid Hvattum, Geodata, Norway
Dialogue and collaboration are key in any efficient process. So why do we plan by .pdf? We will show examples of what’s possible when using existing technologies and data at its full potential – and of course examples on how we can involve our youth in city development. “The city will never be smarter than its inhabitants.”
