If a public park is to be sustainable and viable, it must be owned by the community. The only way to create this ownership is to co-design the park with the local community. Paz Bernaldo’s research during her residency at Age of Wonderland focuses on the application of big and thick data in the development of a public park.
This workshop will take the form of an open discussion on the topic of social innovation driven by big and thick data. Together with a panel of experts, Paz Bernaldo invites the audience to examine ideas that encourage the use of big data in ways that respect the principle of locally led social innovation. What new forms of governance could emerge to promote these ideas, and in what way could technology support this movement?
PAZ BERNALDO (1982, Chile) and her team are working towards creating a living lab park on the side of an urban hill Melipilla, a city south of Santiago. She examines whether open data is a potential tool for social innovation and encourages a critical stance towards the question of who determines which data is collected.
