Students of Berrio-Otxoa visit the University of Deusto to insert data into OpenStreetMap on urban barriers in their neighborhood

The University of Deusto welcomed them to a citizen science event in the framework of a multidisciplinary research-action initiative led by the research teams EDISPe and Deusto Sustainable Research Group and awarded the Deusto Social Impact seal in 2017.

This Tuesday, on the 8th of February 2022, 79 students in their 4th year of secondary education from the school of Berrio-Otxoa Ikastetxea visited the University of Deusto to complete another step of their research in the project Friendly cities for All, namely, to insert to OpenStreetMap the data obtained during mapping the architectural barriers in Santutxu, as reported in this video by RTVE Euskadi.

Virginia Vargas, research project adviser at the International Research Projects Office (IRPO) and Cruz Borges, researcher at Deustotech facilitated the workshops of OpenStreetMap that aimed at uploading data on obstacles to mobility mapped in the neighbourhood of the participants. Moreover, the young researchers were received by Aitziber Mugarra, Principal Investigator of the EDISPe research team and coordinator of the above-mentioned project, Friedly cities for All. To round off the day, they had the opportunity to take a tour of DeustoFabLab guided by Szilard Kados and Paul Badiola.
