What does MAZI stand for?
MAZI means “together” in Greek and the goal of MAZI is to provide technology and knowledge in order to:
- empower those who are in physical proximity, to shape their hybrid urban space, together, according to the local environment and context.
- generate location-based collective awareness as a basis for fostering social cohesion, conviviality, participation in decision-making processes, self-organisation, knowledge sharing, and sustainable living
- facilitate interdisciplinary interactions around the design of hybrid space and the role of ICTs in society.
