UDC Talks @NOON | 2018

Community-centered design

Neighborland co-founder Dan Parham will share a methodology called "community-centered design" which helps engage residents in the planning of our communities. Dan will share the theory that shaped this methodology, along with case studies from across Neighborland's 200 projects, including the Dorothea Dix Park Master Plan.

Dan is the co-founder and CEO of Neighborland, a communications platform that empowers civic organizations to collaborate with the public in an accessible, participatory, and equitable way. As a social enterprise, Neighborland has worked with more than 200 city agencies, universities, foundations, and non-profits across the U.S. More than 3,000,000 residents have participated on Neighborland, and these projects have yielded more than $1 billion in social and economic impact.

Dan’s design work has been recognized by the Venice Biennale of Architecture, Cooper Hewitt National Design Museum, and National Endowment for the Arts. He has spoken about civic engagement and technology at the 100 Resilient Cities Global Summit in Mexico City, Smart Cities World Congress in Barcelona, and the Society of Urban Planning and Research (SPUR) in San Francisco.
