The Apple Tree Matrix
Participatory processes in urban planning often lead to loads of new ideas and opportunities for the project – way more than what we have time and resources for. This is where “The Apple Tree Matrix” can be useful. Print it on A0 or A1 and use sticky notes to help you choose intelligently which activities to prioritize, and which ones to avoid! For more context on how to use the poster, read this article.
