The team felt that the information available about these territories is not granular enough for any decision maker to be sufficiently informed to decide on interventions. The team therefore decided to, firstly, collect more granular information during all the moments people got together during the project Chamar o Futuro em Campolide rollout and secondly, address three thematic areas to gather information in:

  • Public space: measure people’s wellbeing and comfort in the public or collective spaces they use;
  • Social wellbeing: measure the evolution of the feeling of belonging (with family, community, neighbourhood…);
  • Life cycle of materials: measure the evolution of consciousness about how our actions impact the life cycle of materials;

We collected data mainly during the Circle sessions (sharing moments and completion of online forms).  

The main conclusions we reached are the following: The territory we had the privilege to visit is abundant in diversity of human qualities, challenges (not yet transposed), needs (resulting from a dysfunctional artificial system), possibilities, endogenous regenerative and renewable resources (untapped), a tremendous natural beauty and beauty made by Humans, capacities and time.
