We want to make sure people of all genders feel safe in Yarra.
To help give us some insight, we’re working with Monash University’s gender, design and space specialists, XYX Lab, and award-winning digital consultancy, CrowdSpot, to gather perceptions of safety in public space and make real change in our local area.
The YourGround project looks at women’s and gender diverse people’s perceived recreational safety at different locations across Victoria, including Yarra.
For the next few months, YourGround’s online interactive map will be open for community submissions. Everyone is encouraged to contribute. We’re interested to know how locations make you feel, and how different factors make you feel more or less safe.
