This slide is an illustration of how this rich set of data and visualisations could be used to organise collaboration and co-production. Between communities themselves but also with universities, practitioners and possibly local authorities
The map would be just one tool of this collaborative platform that we could also describe as a Civic Innovation School (a concept from CivicWise). It would include other open digital tools besides the mapping (online resources, a wiki and a communication interface) + a series of labs and master classes dedicated to community-led issues (planning, training, medias, time banking, festivals…).
We are at the very beginning of these reflections but we presume that this project doesn’t need much funding to start because it is all about coordination, if we can convince the potential metropolitan supports to collaborate.
