Do I have to be part of an academic institution to participate?

No, anyone with an in-depth understanding of a research-base or practice can participate.

Is there payment for participating?

There is some funding for travel costs which will be assessed on a case by case basis. The project is open and unselected so no funding available for time.

What does participating involve?

  • Reading of research published in Designed to Scale and Made to Measure.

  • Half day site visit to Every One Every Day initiative, or through webinar session,  for questions and clarifications.

  • Production of a 2,000 - 4,000 report or paper, or an infographic, describing, interpreting and analysing the work through the lens of your disciple, knowledge, research, theories and practice. These can be based on a comparative study, a theory-based interpretive study, a practice analysis or another type of study you may suggest.

Will my contribution be published?

What can I read about the Participatory City approach before I decide to participate?
