WeCount Engagement Toolkit Phase 1: Scoping and Community Building

  • 1. Ideas for Change


This folder provides tools and methods to address Scoping and Community Building processes in WeCount. This phase was divided into 4 critical, iterative and interrelated sub-phases which can also be seen as critical objectives to address the main phase. These are: (1) Achieve a situated understanding of traffic-related issues; (2) Explore perceived mobility-related matters of concern; (3) Map the Local WeCount Ecosystem; and (4) Community Building.

Besides methods to address this phase (see pdf file) we propose the following tools:

WeCount Traffic Timeline: this tool consists of a printed canvas for brainstorming and stimulating discussions on traffic related benefits and issues during typical 24 hours days and by month during the year. By using this tool, the research team can investigate and establish how every single participant perceives and experiences traffic related issues in her or his own street.

Interactive Map and Symptoms Cards: the tool consists of a printed map of the WeCount area of intervention (e.g. a neighbourhood or city) on an A0 / A1 poster and symptoms/issues cards that people can stick to the area where they experience them. The focus is on exploring perceived consequences on people's quality of life due to high volumes of traffic. 

Ideal Mobility Canvas:  the Ideal Mobility Canvas can be used to stimulate individual and group reflections on how they would like future mobility in their streets and neighbourhoods to be.
