'Mapping the Inclusive City' - Cities and Governance Seminar Series

Activiteit: Professional or public presentationProfessional


During this seminar we presented the project “Mapping the Inclusive City”, a community-based participatory research project addressing the Geographies of Disability in the city of Groningen (the Netherlands). In this project, researchers at the University of Groningen (UG) and residents at ‘S Heeren Loo (an organisation that provides housing and care for people with disabilities) co-created an interactive map using smartphone technology (ArcGIS), which serves as a data collection method to map the accessibility and inclusivity of public spaces in Groningen. In this seminar, we explained how we used design thinking to enable people with different literacies, positionalities and skills to work together in research as co-researchers.
