FLUSHING BAY: WORKSHOP 3
JAMAICA, NYC - NOVEMBER 2015
Flushing Bay Workshop 3 took results from the previous two Flushing Bay workshops (1, 2) to the crowd at the 2015 Pop-up AoL Exhibit at the Jamaica Learning Arts Center in Jamaica, Queens, in collaboration with VOYCE Inc. and the Jamaica Center Business Improvement District. The case of communicating water quality issues in Flushing Bay and Creek to the general public was presented alongside a general guide for human centered design thinking.
After being presented with a summary of the prior workshops, and filling out a short fill-in-the-blank style card attendees were asked to share their ideas for how water quality issues in Flushing may be better communicated to the public; most responses indicated an increased social media presence may help raise awareness.
