Mapping for Social Change - Christian Nold

Mapping Change for Sustainable Communities

Christian Nold collaboration with UCL Geography department , London 21 and London Planning Aid as part of Urban Buzz research project
October 2007 - December 2008

UCL Project website

This project is both academic research as well as social activism. The plan is to work with three local communities in the Thames Gateway area in London and set up a series of workshops that get a new social group of people involved in local planning processes. The aim will be on city based workshops as well as building online maps that represent and allow them to gather around their own local agendas.

It has been an enourmous long time since I last updated this! I have never been a blog person, and felt irritated by the way new media culture pushes us to be constantly visible to the world. Recently though I kept getting email from people wondering what I was up to. So today is my birthday and I have finally given in :) . So a quick update I am excited about what Rob van Kranenburg and I are calling the Internet of People - which will be a book coming out in the next few months. I am also exstatic about trying to build and map alternative currencies. Take a look at the Bijlmer Euro project. In the last year I have also been building a unique mapping software called Sensory Journeys and the Town Toolkits for which I will build a proper site. On Saturday I am off to Helsinki for the Pixeache festival where I am preseting some work but more importantly working on and island toolkit for the next year. More info soon...
