Participatory Maps for Inclusive Cities With the multi-dimensional complex challenges facing the world today, participatory maps provide a unique way of engaging citizens. Photo by Lee Shaver. Urban planners, designers and architects have their work cut out for them. The rate of urbanization around the world means that we have to reconfigure the way we think, design and plan cities. It is not like starting from scratch on a clean canvas. This is where participatory maps are an increasingly important aspect of studying and planning more inclusive cities. In 2010, Make designed and shared a map, which he calls “USE/LESS,” to bring to attention the dismal circumstances cyclists had to endure in his hometown of Moscow. There are also efforts to map cycling routes in China, which is important given that many Asian cities—particularly in India and China—are seeing a reverse trajectory: a shift away from walkability, pedestrianism and cycling that instead promotes and facilitates car driving.
