One of the most significant challenges in participatory surveying and mapping work are the ways in which privilege and power dynamics can influence the outcomes and shape the dynamics of research activities with and within marginalized communities.

Dr. Heba Khalil, Associate Professor at Cairo University’s Department of Architecture (Faculty of Engineering) will talk about her student team’s experiences conducting citizen surveys in Cairo’s Imbaba neighborhood for the Ecocitizen World Map Project.

Following Dr. Khalil’s presentation, there will be an open discussion on how to attain greater transparency, exchange, and collaboration in the research arena.

Our hope is that this will be the beginning of a series of webinars where participants can share their experiences from different locations and backgrounds, learn from each other, and deepen the discourse on this important subject.
