  • 15. Emergent Research Trajectory User-generated content (production/reception) Engagement Information How is it possible to design interactive urban media that foster initial and sustained engagement for long-term commitment and expression? How is it possible to design large-scale interactive urban systems that might engage people actively on a personal level in relation to a given content?
  • 16. CO2030 CO2-neutrality by 2030 (Municipalities of Aarhus + Kollision) Engaging citizens individually; changing habits to make a difference Exhibition where you could get inspiration on how to decrease your emission of CO2 Attract attention to the exhibition and give the citizen’s fight for a better climate a personal face in the cityscape
  • 17. Movie - will notify when online!
  • 18. CO2nfession/CO2mittment 68 videos recorded (rich and diverse content) Personal exposure (challenge and necessity) Dialogues in and around the booth Serendipitous encounters Generally difficult to get people to engage with the content in the city
  • 19. Climate on the Wall Attention (visibility) and playful interaction (immediate engagement) Positive and active reception Social interaction Richness in interaction forms, not so much in level of information/ content-production
  • 20. Summing Up Increased the focus on content and information in the design of the interactive urban system General appreciation of the installations but more related to the immediate and playful engagement and not so much the possibility to produce and consume information. Openness of the setup Relatively short-term period; maybe habits could evolve over time
  • 21. Future projects COP15  Climate on the Wall  Urban Interactions  CO2nfessions 2.0  Affective Engagement  The Sound of CO2  Content-generation in Urban Space  Planetary Pledge Pyramid
