Hello Lamp Post work with urban planners and Governments around the world to engage local people in designing and shaping their neighbourhoods, so everyone has an equal opportunity to contribute to change.
Their accessible community engagement tool helps those responsible for shaping urban spaces, to interact with the people that live in them, empowering the voices of local communities.
The software allows anyone, anywhere to have a conversation with an object in the street – a park bench, a statue, or a tree, for example.
Hello Lamp Post has been deployed in over 25 cities around the world including Vancouver, Singapore, Malmo, Summerside, Belfast, Mesa, Sydney and London. One of their UK collaborations includes working with The London Legacy Development Corporation, to build a legacy for the Olympic Park by developing a dynamic new heart for East London, creating new opportunities for local people.
Engaging the community and bringing equality and accessibility to the process was vital to achieving their ambitious goal of transforming East London – one of the most challenged areas of the UK – into a “world-class, sustainable and thriving neighbourhood”.
In this project alone, Hello Lamp Post facilitated 4,165 interactions and ensured community engagement was inclusive and accessible, which was previously not possible.
