Greencoin. Place-based app to empower active societies to shape resilient cities.

Abstrakt

Among of all the challenges that cities face, the most crucial one is the need to shape the ability to create well-being of urban communities, what becomes urgent as a result of the compound effect generated by climate change – distinguished between direct impacts, indirect effects and pre-existing vulnerability (Silva, Kernaghan & Luque, 2012). To mitigate climate changes, cities today need to find a way to encourage residents to be actively involved in the process of shaping urban resilience. Therefore, there is an urgent need to define ways to enhance eco living choices. In the age of digitalization, smart cities should benefit from IoT and tools allowing the response to the negative consequences of climate changes. One of the possible solutions is the greencoin app designed as a part of digital twin approach. By designing the app we introduce a new eco currency which aims to engage citizens to act and to empower their eco activities by shaping climate awareness. The designing process is embedded in an interdisciplinary framework including economy, sociology, spatial planning, IT, data science, UX, etc. to define most suitable and applicable solutions from which the city can benefit. The progress of work includes elements of defining functionality, technical solutions, social inclusiveness and impact. As the greencoin app together with green currency is designed in an interdisciplinary environment, we focus on how, by using the new type of currency and gamification, we can encourage citizens to get involved in the process shaping urban resilience. There are many applications tested or implemented worldwide, which has been designed to enhance proenvironmental behaviours, such as: ClimateDrops (shaping climate awarness), ToGoodToGo (helping zerowaste approach), WeSpire (supporting companies), WasteApp (to decrease the size of waste), only few to be mentioned. However, most of them has focused on sectorial approach only. We aim to introduce green currency operating based on app solution. The paper was structured to introduce the process of defining the functionality of greencoin application as a supportive solution for shaping urban resilience. The research team designed the theoretical framework for the application to approach the need of planning for adaptable cities and mitigating climate changes. The work brought studies on existing currencies, urban solutions and data-driven initiatives enhancing active citizens. The process became a starting point for designing and testing the applicability and defining technical challenges to introduce such a solution. The aims of the paper are therefore as follows: • Defined solutions which should be included in the green currency design to help to mitigate climate changes. • Established base for green currency design and defined functionality of the greencoin app to stimulate eco living choices. • Introduced framework for the technical solutions to empower the successful implementation of the process. To introduce the theoretical framework allowing the conceptualization of greencoin app we based our research on a methodological approach including case study review, success stories, data mining techniques. The designing process however is based on the product design and moonshot thinking methodology. The paper introduces the concept for the functionality of the application to influence urban eco lifestyles.
