Dean's Award for Research Engagement and Impact

Prize: Prize (including medals and awards)


The XYX Lab are proud to announce the YourGround Project has received the Dean's Award for Research Engagement and Impact.

The YourGround project undertook a 13-week survey that crowdsourced women and gender-diverse people’s perceptions of safety when exercising and recreating for health and wellbeing in Victoria’s open spaces.

The YourGround interactive map collected over 6000 submissions across metropolitan, suburban and regional Victoria, uncovering important patterns in our community spaces that make women and gender-diverse people feel vulnerable.

This data enables local governments and communities to access high-quality data and insights to make well-informed decisions that will make recreation safer, more accessible, inclusive for women and gender-diverse people.
