Research: Community Visioning in Bogor

  • Date:November 25, 2017 - November 26, 2017
  • Location:Pulo Geulis, Griya Katulampa and Sentul City

The AIC Urban Water research team, led by Monash University, Institut Pertanian Bogor and Universitas Indonesia, held workshops with the communities of Pulo Geulis (25 November 2017), Griya Katulampa (26 November 2017) and Sentul City (re-done on 9 January 2018) to better understand the different ways these residents interact with water in their daily lives, how they envision their community in the future and how water could contribute to these aspirations.

These ‘community visioning’ workshops were hosted by each community, with residents participating on a voluntary basis and divided into small groups of men, women and youth. Researchers guided each group to explore their aspirations for their community and create a vision for a more liveable and healthy future.
