YourGround - Collecting data on safe & unsafe spaces in Nillumbik

Our friends at Nillumbik Shire Council are joining Monash University’s gender, design and space specialists - XYX Lab - and award-winning digital consultancy - CrowdSpot - to gather perceptions of safety in public space and make real change in our local area.

YourGround is an interactive map asking women and gender-diverse people to highlight safe and unsafe spaces. It’s a proactive tool to help make positive change in our shared public spaces – spaces that should be accessible to everyone.

The map crowdsources data, allowing users to anonymously drop a pin, tell a story or share an experience while out for leisure, sport, exercise or play.

When collated and analysed this data will provide insights that can make our cities, towns, parks and sporting and community spaces more inclusive and equitable.
