The Corona pandemic made it really hard for museums and event organizers to connect with people and provide alternative offerings. However, Karlsruhe and its surroundings also offer a lot of places outside the museums and in public space where history, art and culture are omnipresent. Therefore, we wanted to develop an application through which it is possible to discover these places and to exchange experiences at these places with other people.

What it does

With "Active Discussion" you can post short messages and share pictures. The twist is that the post is tied to the location you are in. Only people who are coming to that location in the near future can respond to the comment and join the discussion. Furthermore, there are interesting moderation functions that make discovering new places and exchanging with other users even nicer. For example, a moderator can post a viewpoint posts which are recognizable to all users and can serve as an incentive to explore that location in more detail. Furthermore, moderators can join discussions anywhere, for example to answer questions or to provide additional information.
