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.
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 We Can Help
Bringing cities and their citizens closer together. Hello Lamp Post allows people to have two-way 'chats' with their surroundings; providing people with key local information, while gathering important perceptions, opinions and ideas. Hello Lamp Post helps increase participation and engagement in local decision making. Insights from interactions are anonymously shared with organisations such as local authorities to enable better informed decision making.
