We have been very lucky to work with the fantastic Community 21 social networking and neighbourhood planning tool.
The primary aim of Community 21 is to help strengthen and sustain communities and enable their inhabitants to have a voice and stake in the future of the environment in which they live whilst sharing good practice and knowledge with neighbours to build more resilient communities.
We spent a week work-shopping and developing computer aided visualisation and community engagement research and development work as part of the 2011 Future Village Team. Working in the Community of Heathfield in East Sussex. As part of a team, we explored ideas co-designed by a range of community residents of what that community would be like in 50 years time and visualised this to create recognisable images of the future.
