SymposiumThe UrbanIXD Symposium


This paper presents an innovative community project through the notion of research through design. With Manchester as our hybrid city backdrop, we look
specifically at community greening groups in the Northern Quarter (NQ). Thirty-four participants attended 12 conversations that asked: how do you respond to a greening challenge with the digital communication and technology you carry with you? Through the use of IDEO and D:School’s Empathy Map we reveal conversational themes that will inform a design challenge.
