Maptionnaire & The Story Behind this event

It’s been ten years since the story of Maptionnaire began at Aalto University when a group of researchers, our founders Anna & Maarit included, discovered that for creating better cities, we need to get the residents involved. Since then, we’ve been working hard to develop our map-based community engagement platform, Maptionnaire. Throughout this time, we’ve received gratitude from planners, researchers, and community members who have found Maptionnaire to be the go-to platform for planning cities, neighborhoods, and streets together with people.
