Coming soon: Policy brief about co-creating inclusive public spaces

The C3Places project (supported in the ENSUF call) is aimed at developing strategies and tools to increase the quality of public open spaces (parks, squares, streets, etc.) through Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) by influencing positively co-creation and social cohesion effects. A policy brief is being prepared and will be launched in December 2020, nevertheless the lessons learned within the project show that when digital technology is not only used to transform the public realm in more high-tech places it can contribute to enrich the experiences of all users. Public open spaces as a common good – is a resource which, if used responsibly, can help transform the way people live, work, learn, spend leisure time and interact socially. To achieve this it is paramount that public spaces are inclusive, responsive, and inviting for all, allowing people to appropriate and share them with others; and digital interconnectivity, through its potential for engaging potential users, gives rise to new forms of agency in the design of public spaces. The experiences within C3Places indicates that placemaking can be an inspiring approach to engage communities to strengthen democracy values and share civic responsibility.
