Proceedings of the 9th International Conference on Communities & Technologies-Transforming Communities
We present Buur Natuur, a design approach to empowering residents to make their neighbourhood greener by adding for instance wildflowers to verges, or establishing communal gardens. Residents are empowered by the deployment of physical artifacts in urban space offering inspiration and knowledge through a AR interface, as well as an online platform, providing a process and platform that facilitates the creation of temporary alliances for a greener neighborhood between citizens, municipalities, NGOs and businesses in the local area.
