« Wikibuilding Workshop at Universidad Central del Ecuador »7 Billion Urbanists / UFO Disseminate - Projects - Train
In October 2016, 7 BU organized a Wikibuilding Workshop with the Faculty of Architecture and Urban Planning at UCE, with professors Andrea Salazar and Marco Salazar and their 30 students. After great experience of workshops in Europe and China, the seven co-founders of 7BU arrived to Quito a week before the Habitat III Conference to work with the students on La Floresta neighborhood using our open source tool Unlimited Cities DIY. We were working day and night for five days using the power of the collective intelligence at big scale to urban planning and allowing a dialogue between all stakeholders (municipalities, urban professionals and civil society: city dwellers, inhabitants, associations …).
We presented our activities and the results of the workshop at the French Pavilion during Habitat III Conference.
