M.AD. - Teenagers mapping for Urban Regeneration

Published on Sep 30, 2020 by Guido Boella


The main objective of the project promoted by the Municipality of Torino was to stimulate more the involvement of the teenagers in the public local life, through urban regeneration interventions; to make teenagers able to explain the city in a critical way, building representations of urban spaces from their point of view.

The project was developed in three phases: territorial analysis, participatory co-design, fulfilment of the project in practice.

Students from high schools used FirstLife for a participatory mapping highlighting their personal point of view living the city, also bringing into the school a deliberation about technologies as a tool for participatory citizenship and web education, increasing their digital skills.
