What is Hello Lamp Post?

Hello Lamp Post encourages people to look at their city with fresh eyes. It gives citizens a chance to slow down, reflect and feedback to their city, empowering them to take back ownership and influence its future development. Hello Lamp Post makes the planning of our cities more centred around citizens’ needs and ideas, and enables the true co-creation of our urban environments.

How It Works

  • Step 2

    Say Hello

    Scan a QR code or send a message via SMS, Facebook Messenger or Whatsapp.

  • Step 3

    Keep Talking

    You'll soon get a reply from the friendly object. Keep chatting to learn about the area and provide perceptions and opinions on its questions.

How We Can Help

Bringing cities and their citizens closer together.
