The Neighbourhood conference – which is the LOOPER final conference – will take place on Tuesday 20 October 2020. The conference will centre around co-creation, community building, and evaluation at neighbourhood level.
The LOOPER project has been granted a four-month extension from the funding agencies and will run until October 2020.
The three LOOPER Living Labs have been actively co-creating solutions for urban problems in the past year. In Brussels, a traffic calming campaign will launched. In Manchester, pilot interventions on traffic calming and greening are currently being developed. In Verona, several measures to improve air quality and traffic safety are being tested.
LOOPER is organising a special session on learning loops in co-creation to improve public spaces in cities at the 2019 AESOP conference. The session will focus on the use of participatory sensing to identify problems and online and offline participation tools for co-creation in multiple domains.
