NIMBY

nimbyismNot In My Back Yardnot in my backyard
Traditional developments require engagement programmes in which the 'community' is 'consulted' with respect to incoming developments, often with blunt tools such as focus groups, which often result in lack of representation and input, or at worst can result in NIMBYism.

Hacktivism

Parametric design
