The Relationship Between Population, Regeneration And Waste Within East Manchester

Through mapping and research, we will begin to analyse the relationship between population, regeneration and waste within specific council wards of East Manchester. Our digital tool will seek to incorporate:

  • Educational factors in order to further the knowledge of recycling and reducing
  • multiplayer function to promote community participation
  • goals/challenges with a reward incentive to keep users engaged in both the short term and long term.

In the diagrams above our methodology portrays the various scales that we will look at in greater depth to allow us to create a digital tool that encourages recycling at an urban user scale whilst following governmental guidelines and policies.
