Forage Tracking Project

WEBSITE HERE

The Forage Tracking project is mapping the tacit knowledge and spatial organization of informal recyclers.

We are using location-detecting hardware and software to investigate how Catadores, informal recyclers in Brazilian cities, find and collect material in the city. We are also developing participatory platforms that will help them to organize their activities and connect the cooperative to the citizens.

In our work with the recycling cooperative COOPAMARE, we try to increase visibility and understanding of the service they provide to the city.

See our conference paper from the 12th Participatory Design Conference in Denmark: Putting the Informal on the Map – Tools for Participatory Waste Management
