#15M /// Premio Europeo del Espacio Público Urbano 2012 | immaginoteca

#15M /// Premio Europeo del Espacio Público Urbano 2012 | immaginoteca | Urban Life | Scoop.it

Quizás nunca haya hablado del #15M en este blog, aunque haya sido para mí la experiencia política y ciudadana en que más me he sentido identificado. He tenido la suerte de seguir desde cerca la vida de la acampada sol en Madrid, cuando la cruzaba todas las mañanas mientras iba desde #laguna a Ecosistema Urbano en bici. En la foto podéis ver la Plaza de la Puerta del Sol el 15 de mayo, el día en que miles de personas se manifestaron exigiendo una Democracia Real Ya.

 

Hoy, meses después, sigo con mucha atención desde París las evoluciones de este movimiento que ha sido para mí una importante experiencia de aprendizaje de cultura ciudadana y auto-organización.

 

Es con mucha emoción que anuncio hoy que La Acampada en la Puerta del Sol ha ganado la CATEGORIA ESPECIAL de Premio Europeo del Espacio Público Urbano 2012. Un premio merecido, porque es para TODOS LOS CIUDADANOS. He afirmado más de una vez que soy un arquitecto que no le interesa construir, pues este premio representa también una prueba de que hay futuro para una arquitectura y un espacio publico que vaya más allá de la construcción.

Connecting Citizens To Their Government By Turning It Into A Game

Connecting Citizens To Their Government By Turning It Into A Game | Urban Life | Scoop.it

PlanIt is a game about the issues that face local government, designed to get people (especially young people) more involved and understanding of what goes in to managing their communities.

 

It works like this: A group--say, a planning commission or small business--puts up a few hundred dollars for community investment. Players register on the PlanIt platform, and take part in three "missions." To win pledgeable "coins," they complete "challenges" within each mission. Then the projects with the most pledged coins get real cash to spend.

 

About half the players so far have been under 18. Gordon says younger people add a lot of competitive spirit, and are important for encouraging others to play. "This is their first introduction to anything to do with civic engagement. They provide really meaningful input into these issues. And not only that, they also tend to motivate the adults."

From Conservation to Crowdsourcing: A Typology of Citizen Science

"Citizen science is a form of research collaboration involving members of the public in scientific research projects to address real-world problems. Often organized as a virtual collaboration, these projects are a type of open movement, with collective goals addressed through open participation in research tasks. Existing typologies of citizen science projects focus primarily on the structure of participation, paying little attention to the organizational and macrostructural properties that are important to designing and managing effective projects and technologies. By examining a variety of project characteristics, we identified five types-Action, Conservation, Investigation, Virtual, and Education- that differ in primary project goals and the importance of physical environment to participation."
