Metaverse for citizen dialogue and co-creative processes – How can virtual meetings strengthen citizen dialogue?
Metaverse is a virtual reality where digital technology makes it possible to experience things that today require physical presence. It can be used to show and tell about complex structures and to create an overview and understanding of the abstract. The consulting company Around the corner has collaborated with Sweco in a project that explored how a virtual citizen dialogue and co-creation process could work. The goal of the project is to improve conversations and meetings between citizens, municipal representatives, and planners regarding plans in community building. Share experiences and lessons learned from the project and learn more about how metaverse can create opportunities for better dialogue and understanding.
