Futurescape City Tours now accepting applications for Phoenix walking tour

August 29, 2013

Last year, CNS-ASU ran a successful pilot project that took citizens on a walk through their own city. This walking tour, called the Futurescape City Tours, was designed to get citizens to focus on particular elements of the urban landscape, and how they incorporate technology and can affect issues such as sustainability.

This fall, six different cities, including St. Paul, Portland, Phoenix, Springfield, Durham, and Washington, D.C., will host Futurescape City Tours. Phoenix will host a tour for the second year in a row, and this year the tour promises to be even more engaging than the last.

On the tour, participants will be invited to take photographs and notes at several stops that will then be used after the tour in a focus group opportunity where participants will discuss their observations in relation to the past, present and future of the city. Additionally, there will be a public gallery event at which the photographs taken on the tour will be exhibited along with the other material and outcomes from the post-tour discussions.

The Futurescape City Tours project is now accepting applications from Phoenix metro area citizens who are interested in engaging with urban technology and sustainability issues. For more information on the project, please fill out a brief survey. For more information on the project in general, please visit the Futurescape City Tours website.
