How we got here

  1. Starting as a trial to test the top two key aspects of liveability in the community, the initial focus was on
    • Outdoor spaces and buildings
    • Community support and health services
  2. We were joined by two passionate cities, Tweed Heads and Wollongong, which jumped onboard with us, forming our first pilot
  3. Launching the initial minimal viable product to test the idea so we could develop the first iteration of our iPad app. Here, we started capturing information directly from community members about their surrounding environment.
  4. Ramping up the feedback, we ran a series of “Walk and Talks” in our pilot cities with key members of our seniors community to collect the 'why' behind the data they were providing. This opened up key insights and perceptions about how they viewed the built environment they moved within.
  5. Our maps started filling with valuable details for the communities perspectives of the Tweed Heads and Wollongong built environments.
  6. To reach more of our communities, we launched the Android and iPhone versions to step up data collection.
