Your Sport. Your Leisure. Your Play. Your Place.
Monash Council, along with 18 other councils, has partnered up with Monash University, CrowdSpot and XYXLab to participate in a digital platform that will advance knowledge of safety in public spaces for women, girls and gender-diverse people.
YourGround is a crowd-mapping website that enables women, girls and gender-diverse people to anoymously 'drop a pin' to identify and share public recreational spaces in Monash that make them feel uneasy, scared, unwelcome or happy, safe and included.
The data collated from this will help Council in creating inclusive spaces for women, girls and gender-diverse people in public recreational spaces, such as trails, paths, parks and facilities.
The YourGround map is accessible across Victoria and open to anyone over 18 years identifying as a woman or gender diverse. Those under 18 years can participate with the support of an adult.
