Speaker Bio & Abstract

 
Ingrid Elizabeth Haraldseid Consultant Mobility Division, The Agency for Urban Environment
City of Oslo
Norway

BiographyI have a background as urban and regional planner. I work as a traffic planner for The City of Oslo as a traffic planner. The traffic agent is a mapping tool where children report positive and negative experiences on their school routes. It is an app where the children play secret agents and report back to headquarter, the city of Oslo. Traffic planners receive the information and conduct measures based on the reports. The app functions as democracy in practice. By inviting children to participate in planning we hope that they will become active citizens in the future.
