Glasgow has taken the stance that a Future City isn’t simply a smart city of technology. The people make the Future City: when citizens participate and help the city meet people’s needs. What skills do citizens need to be able to articulate their needs and be part of the solution?
Answering this question is the aim of the OPEN Glasgow Engagement and Literacy Programme

Future City Literacy

  1. 1. Engagement and Literacy Scoping
  2. 2. The Engagement and Literacy Programme Scoping has explored the literacy in a Future City by considering people’s ability to: access information understand the information translate the information into decisions contribute data, information and knowledge share and participate
  3. 3. The Engagement and Literacy Programme Team To scope the Engagement and Literacy programme, icecream architecture were appointed to embed the programme in the Glasgow communities by working in tandem with the other elements of OPEN Glasgow. The ELP scoping team included the OPEN Glasgow team and over 30 community contacts and representatives. Including: Greater Easterhouse Alcohol Awareness Urban Fox Platform Firstport Beyond the Finish Line Challengers Possilpark Stalled Spaces Depot Arts + Concrete Garden Stalled Spaces, Glasgow City Council MakLab HyperLocal News Derelict Glasgow Govan Book of Memories Big Lottery Cultural Enterprise Office “We want Glasgow to flourish as a modern, multi-cultural, metropolitan city of opportunity, achievement, culture and sporting excellence where people and businesses thrive and visitors are always welcomed.” Engagement and Literacy Programme

  5. 5. What’s out there already?
  6. 6. “We want Glasgow to flourish as a modern, multi-cultural, metropolitan city of opportunity, achievement, culture and sporting excellence where people and businesses thrive and visitors are always welcomed.”
  7. 7. Throughout the scoping of the Literacy and Engagement initiatives, there was a testing process that asked; What does this do for Glasgow?
  8. 8. Each initiative has been mapped against the City’s requirements as extracted from: economic opportunities, increased quality of life and reduced environmental footprint energy, transport, health and public safety, the area of literacy that it addresses improvements Enable Enable encompasses Initiatives that will span across all or most of the themes and provide an infrastructure that supports, trains and expands the reach of other elements within the Future City. These initiatives lay the ground works for other Future City initiatives to happen. Learn The Learning initiatives equip people with the knowledge and skills to participate, understand or contribute to the Future City. These create learning opportunities that range from one off short events to educational programmes that allow each citizen to find the right learning point for them. Each learning initiative has a varying scale of literacy improvements, with each also harnessing a link to the transformative initiatives. Transform Literacy in the Future City has the capacity to provide transformative change in citizen life. Through research and consultation in Glasgow this group has been created to demonstrate, in these communities, the transformative change that could be achieved. Each is consider in way that it would be scaleable or replicable or that it could be applied to another discipline or area. Initiative Categories Through the Knee Jerk Stage, the initiatives evolved into three categories related to the means by which they would engage and deliver for the Future City project and the people of the City:

  11. 11. Future Makers Mapping Future Apps Train the Changers These are the Final Initiatives to be delivered by the Engagement and Literacy Programme after a process of filtering that considered the delivery and impact of the Initiatives within the overall OPEN programme.
  12. 12. The Shortlist 1 Train the Changers A collaboration with the University of West of Scotland to facilitate a participant driven learning process for a group of ‘changers’ to become ambassadors of the Future City. “A new breed of educators, inspired by everything from the internet to evolutionary psychology, neuroscience and artificial intelligence...To them knowledge isn’t a commodity that’s delivered from teacher to student but something that emerges from the students’ own curiosity fuelled exploration “ Changers will be invited to undertake a self-directed study and collation of that study in a shared learning zone allowing this cohort and future cohorts to understand all elements of the demonstrators and effectively the basis of the Future City. Train the changers comprises of: learning package workshops participants can share their findings and learning. 2 Future Maps A series of workshops and engagement events to teach people how to map. Maps allow people to share their local knowledge and deliver tangible benefits for the wider community. Bringing people and data together through maps to create a rich, layered, user friendly and shareable map of Glasgow’s assets and opportunities. Working hand in hand with people who are already mapping to some degree in order to gather data and utilise it in accessible and useful ways for each community. This set of maps could include maps of assets for neighbourhoods: things to do, where to get help, how to get there, mapping services like Community Councils and Social Enterprises, the neighbourhood heritage walks and the empty spaces that could be utilised as creative and making spaces in the city. This set of maps will create a layered set of data that will aid in distilling cross-sector info and trends. The mapping will reach a wide range of audiences spread across the city. 3 Future Makers A collaboration with Glasgow Science Centre and CoderDojo Scotland to deliver an innovative coding education programme in conjunction with Glasgow City Council. The Future makers Initiative will deliver: a series of open source training material an introduction to programming for children and young people from 5 -17 years old an in depth programming summer camps and days sessions from 8 - 11 year olds and 12 -17 year olds. “How did you get into coding ? When I was much younger I found computers fascinating. When I was 12 or 13, I taught myself how to build websites and write software.” Lawrence Job, 17, The Guardian The future makers initiative will allow the Glasgow Science Centre to expand its current education programme by reaching younger and wider audiences and providing more in-depth learning. In line with the OPEN Glasgow demonstrator ethos, other groups and cities will be free to use this material to organise their own sessions, benefitting from Glasgow’s experience. 4 Future Apps This initiative delivers a series of engagement methods developed around the functionality and impact of the Future City Apps as they are released. Understanding that it is not always enough to just create an App to aid citizen engagement we must also look to test these and really empower communities to make best use of the apps, which in turn should support the adoption of these within the respective services. They will sit across a variety of areas looking at supporting people to cycle more, get involved in community activities, report problems in their local area and present ideas for the improvement of services.

  14. 14. “People are lacking in confidence in this situation, they are met with a friendly and welcoming face”
  15. 15. A broad spectrum of initiatives have been scoped with the most appropriate, deliverable and demonstrative being implemented with others being blueprinted to allow for future uptake, development or implementation in Glasgow or other cities. The research had an allowance for initiatives to develop, even with the understanding that under Literacy Programme at this point, they could not be delivered.

  17. 17. From initial group brainstorming sessions and research; the following are some of the Early Concepts that developed. This is not an exhaustive list, but instead a snapshot of the bluesky thinking and early motives that came from Engagement and Literacy scoping.

  19. 19. Collect Litter For a Ticket Collect Litter as you wait for the bus to get a reduction or free bus / train ride, utilising a sensor on the bus that weighs the litter collected and logs it into your account. Logging it on routes also to show how much it has been used; is it effective and how much litter does it actually collect. Shared Wi-Fi Share your wifi through network framework - open wifi via subscribers - enable a contact detail for people to ask for password through your wifi identity - build up a user rating. Leftovers Marketing your leftover food, a community of offerings / offerers framed and connected fridges...connects to a community wide food bank. ‘Lend me some sugar’ Cycle Sensors Work with Urban Fox to create bikes that are augmented with sensors and cameras that can allow an upload of information a way of tracking reasons why people do and don’t cycle from the perspective of both new and experienced cyclists. What is the point that stops cycling grow within Glasgow is at the early stage of starting or later on? . Sensors measuring proximity around the bike, perhaps your light glow brighter as things get too close to you. Light sensor to turn light on for you Can We?? A challenge set out to the city as a whole can we in x amount of time reduce the amount of pollution, increase the use of public transport. Using engaging techniques to support people to do things . Sensors will be placed to track numbers of people using public transport and also to measure air quality...CAN We change it in a month or two ?? Stored Energy How can gyms, cycles etc. start to power elements of our city. Dance off A mass dance where people are wearing sensors that will track their movement, heart rate, body temperature etc. and can then be played back to them as graphics and data. The dance is created to be an on street performance with the data being translated and projected as the movement takes place. Perhaps it is a danceathon or ceilidh. This could tie in with cultural events like the The Commonwealth Ceilidh. Blogging Foxes A direct reference to an existing project that collates utilises natural language generation to create blog posts for a set of birds that have been tagged. Day of Data As people we are asked to input anonymous information about our daily lives. How long does it take us to get to work? What method do we use to travel? Do we travel alone? Do you take a pack lunch or eat out? Do you exercise during the day? Do you leave your place of work during working hours? Do you use the outdoor spaces in the city? etc. One day in the life of Glasgow. From this data collection can we create a series of data collection challenges for the city and its people to inform larger citywide decisions. Small Crime A platform for people to document and map small crimes (eg phone theft, unusual / intimidating behaviour, fly-tipping, distressed people) in order to build up a picture of trends and influence local decision making and small crime solutions. Online Mapathon A layered online mapathon where people can contribute on different levels from just taking a picture of trees on their street, to mapping accessibility in the city. The people are challenged to make a rich tapestry of what Glasgow is and how we interact with it , move about it and are part of it. Different communities will have different knowledge and different interests that can build up the layers of the map. This can be underpinned by a traditional mapping of the City and its spaces. Data Dating A platform for people across the city to enter data to link them with others in similar situations eg similar illnesses, like-minded creative disciplines, similar enterprise ideas. These linked people could share their city knowledge within their shared subject. Early Concepts
