Taller - Explorando el futuro de la Civic Tech

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Taller en inglés y español

Making Sense (http://making-sense.eu/) collaborators Alexia Mellor & Valeria Righi will guide participants to use critical design methods to envision scenarios where citizens are empowered to create and use technology to tackle pressing environmental issues such as air and noise pollution.

The workshop will ask participants to suspend disbelief while we consider data from the perspective of both human and non-human agents in order to imagine the kind of world we would like to create. We will explore the interconnectedness of issues, and the relationships between infrastructures, economics and politics. Through this we will consider various forms of resources and forms of participation, while identifying areas that civic technology can support the transformations we desire. 

The workshop also seeks to discuss how the academic, technology & maker communities might contribute to the design and development of sensor enclosures and data displays to support engagement and sense making, an area of citizen sensing that remains largely unexplored.

No previous experience required, just a sense of play and curiosity!

The workshop will be conducted in English and Spanish.
