Augmented reality app helping Belfast residents develop shared vision for future

This would be a first of its kind community-led initiative that uniquely focuses on how virtual, digital, and safe physical “shared spaces” can strengthen the responsiveness and resilience among groups with high levels and histories of social division.

“Shared Futures” is a Planning Toolkit enabling communities to co-create positive change together.

A Raspberry Pi powered local interface network creates integrated virtual, digital, and physical “shared spaces” for enhancing “communication, cooperation”
