Dr Paul Cureton FRSA is Director of Post-Graduate Research, Lancaster Institute for the Creative Arts. He has just launched a set of resources that take Geodesign into a more participatory direction working with 12 council partners.

Geodesign is a framework and series of methods developed by Carl Steinitz for collaborative decision-making between built environment professionals and natural sciences using geographic information systems (GIS). The framework has been established for over twenty-five years and is pertinent to contemporary coastal challenges and multidisciplinary work for climate futuring (Hollstein, 2019). This presentation presents a state of the art of Geodesign. It offers a new delivery mechanism for Geodesign using UX cards as a design tool for non-traditional audiences and an applied case study to demonstrate its relevance in complex coastal environments for resilience.
