Abstract

Sustainability as one of the most recognised principles in urban and environmental planning, which include not only the economic and environmental dimensions but also social factors. In order to measure social sustainability, different criteria are mentioned in various research. Some have recently emphasised participation, social engagement, and social participation. These terms convey a shared meaning of participation of lay people in planning and managing their city or neighbourhood. Participation in planning has social justice implications, which leads to social stability. From another point of view, participatory planning increases personal power for those who engage, and reinforces democratic values. Stakeholders' participation in the planning process can be implemented by different means, changing from distributing the questionnaire to holding a communicative meeting led by planners and similar experts. emerging communication technology brings about new capabilities of engaging stakeholders and lay people in urban and environmental planning. New technologies, such as Information and Communication Technology (ICT) and Big Data, provide extensive and easy participation of people in policy-making decisions that govern their cities. Far-reaching comprehension of the way people use and interact with the environment is an important factor for decision makers and planners. The aim of this research is to explore the potential of technologies available to lay-people at different scales of urban planning. From this exploration, the capability of technologies Will be assessed for their ability to accurately interpret people's perception of, and interaction with the environment.
