YourGround: Your Sport, Your Leisure, Your Play, Your Place, Your Victoria

Research output: Book/ReportOther ReportOther


The YourGround project is a social research project that surveys women and gender-diverse people to map their perceptions of safety when exercising and recreating for health and wellbeing in Victoria’s open spaces. It is a collaboration between the Monash University XYX Lab and CrowdSpot. The project took place within the context of COVID-19 and was conceptualised to understand equity and access to, and use of, public spaces, particularly for exercise and recreation during the periodic lockdowns across Victoria.

YourGround aims to provide data and insights into access and inclusivity to public spaces for women and gender-diverse people and to drive urban design initiatives in line with Victoria’s Equality Act 2020. YourGround Vic was supported by 25 Local and State Government partners, including 23 LGAs plus Respect Victoria and the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning.

The data was crowdsourced over a thirteen-week period from April to July 2021. During this period, YourGround attracted nearly 6,000 submissions in the form of pins, comments about those pins and clicking of the support button on a pin.
