Karancs Fiesta, Salgótarján.

As a result of the Urban Planning and Design 2 public participation event, UFLab were contacted by a local high school research team [Demolab / Kísérletváros] who asked the Laboratory to present the student’s plans to the residents and to promote the public participation method at their city event. The so called Karancs Fiesta event aroused great interest with approximately 700 guests in the main square of Salgótarján, where UFLab appeared with three digital platform and one manual tool. On the digital surfaces people could get acquainted with the future plans of Salgótarján’s main square, the public participation events and the tools of gamification we used so far. The manual tool is called Mapping, where participants could share their visions about the location.

The event was organized by Demolab / Kísérletváros in Salgótarján, 07/2019.
