Longford Nua is a smartphone app that addresses the need to engage everyone in imagining a better future for Longford, with a focus on the regeneration of the Northern Quarter of the town.
The app is being developed for the Longford URBACT Local Group as part of the MAPS Network. It will encourage people in Longford to map stories from Longford’s past, what they value about the town, and their visions for the future of underused spaces in the town. Engage Longford uses both digital technologies and real events such as workshops to generate engagement, data and potential solutions.
The app is currently under development.
