Anthropological research & community engagement
With anthropological methods, we offer social baseline analyses of the present social life, before development. Urban life should not only be measured by the number of people, but by the quality of their lives. Hence, our social baseline analyses are both quantitatively and qualitatively.
Our anthropologists and sociologists combine deep knowledge of human behavior, with extensive user engagement to give our clients a true and fair fundament for a human-centered development.
Our team is trained and skilled in facilitating community engagement, and we specialize in visual, textural, and oral communication to all users.
We turn our learnings from the social baseline analyses and community engagement into the human-centered design.
Finally, we offer to monitor the social life, after realization. This gives our clients a fair overview of the social value gained by the investment.
