Crowdsourcing in Ghent

This map helps locate projects, initiatives and institutions related to participatory and sustainable urbanism.

You can zoom in and out (it’s not just Ghent!)

Everyone is welcome to add items on the map! You can do that in two ways:

1) By enlarging it (top right button) and logging in to Google Maps, if you have a Google account and you are familiar with Google Maps.

2) By sending us a note with the project/initiative/institution you would like to add, and we’ll be happy to do it for you. Suggest a project or a crowd lab!
