Full Impact Potential: What are the main spread strategies moving forward? (Please consider geographic spread, policy reform, and independent replication/adoption of the idea or other mechanisms.)
The idea is to begin with small steps in each neighborhood of Prishtina as to nurture the trust gradually while resonated success stories from these actions will attract more interest from people from other local communities. After one year, we estimate to map entirely the city of Prishtina and to spread to rural areas within the Municipality boundaries. At that point in time, other Municipalities of Kosovo will ask for establishing project chapters in their locations. The first year participants will be promoted and will train young leaders in these new locations on community mapping.
Barriers: What barriers might hinder the success of your project and how do you plan to overcome them?
Two great barriers are related to privacy issues. There are people who would want to use the platform directly without registering or having to log in, however to avoid the misuse of posting inappropriate or waste material to the platform we are including a register form that allows for creating a username as to avoid using the full name of the user. Also, while creating the community street-view feature in the digital map, people must approve if they want to make visible their private land. For this reason we are going to specifically try to cover public spaces.
