How can challenges of the urban environment be made visible to its inhabitants? How can we ‘nudge’ behaviour and use data to solve problems? The Open Citizens project, based in the city of Coventry in the UK, asked local secondary school students to consider this, working in collaboration with Digital Media undergraduate students from Coventry University.

Open Citizens was funded by Think Higher, one of the 34 HEFCE-funded ‘National Networks for Collaborative Outreach’. These networks aim to help streamline higher education outreach for local schools, as well as exploring new forms of outreach to meet local needs and priorities.
