Call for participation: constructing the "P2P-Urbanism World Atlas"

Dear all,

this is a open invitation to take part to the editing of the "P2P-Urbanism World Atlas".

The Atlas is based on Google Maps (http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?hl=en&ie=UTF8&msa=0&msid... a href="http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?hl=en&ie=UTF8&msa=0&msid=110538348662963558317.00048e51c3b506aee559b&ll=51.234407,18.720703&spn=31.033478,93.076172&z=4">http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?hl=en&ie=UTF8&msa=0&msid=110538348662963558317.00048e51c3b506aee559b&ll=51.234407,18.720703&spn=31.033478,93.076172&z=4> a href="http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?hl=en&ie=UTF8&msa=0&msid=110538348662963558317.00048e51c3b506aee559b&ll=51.234407,18.720703&spn=31.033478,93.076172&z=4">http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?hl=en&ie=UTF8&msa=0&msid=110538348662963558317.00048e51c3b506aee559b&ll=51.234407,18.720703&spn=31.033478,93.076172&z=4 a href="http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?hl=en&ie=UTF8&msa=0&msid=110538348662963558317.00048e51c3b506aee559b&ll=51.234407,18.720703&spn=31.033478,93.076172&z=4">http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?hl=en&ie=UTF8&msa=0&msid=110538348662963558317.00048e51c3b506aee559b&ll=51.234407,18.720703&spn=31.033478,93.076172&z=4>>).

Markers on Gmap locate P2P urban interventions.

According to the ongoing debate on P2P urbanism we are filtering urban interventions (implemented projects) fitting in the following statement:

P2P Urbanism may be understood as that collection of temporary, long-term as well as digital urban interventions carried out cooperatively by, amongst others, inhabitants, professionals, NGOs, public agencies, researchers, activists, artists, sociologists, and urban scientists meant to study, construct, and repair the city in a way that anyone may choose, participate, share, and modify theories, methods, and implementation technologies at any one time.

Therefore we are looking for long-term, urban interventions as well as smaller, temporary urban and diital interventions which can be understood and interpret as P2P urban philosophy. A legend has been used to discriminate among:

(blue) = temporary P2P urban interventions
(red) = long-term P2P urban interventions
(green) = other P2P urban-related interventions

A yellow marker contains instructions and information.

To take part to the World Atlas project you should send your Gmail account to cityleft@gmail.com >. Our ambition is to discover an cover every region of the world in which P2P urban interventions have taken place.

You may invite other participants to this project. Since the Atlas is at very beginning we expect that some changes will occur in the structure of the given information in some time. Participants will be notified of such changes. The target is to complete the map before next spring when a conference on P2P urbanism will be organized in Rome.

A Google group has been created to allow feedbacks among participants. Only active participants to the Atlas project may visualize and take part to the group.
