The winner of the Hagit Adib-Ginio Prize for Social Planning for the year 2023: Bat-El Yosef Ravid
The prize was awarded to her for her work: ‘The Social Digital Twin - The Social Navigator of the Smart City', under the guidance of Dr. Meirav Aharon Gutman.
The Hagit Adib-Ginio Prize for Social Planning is granted by the foundation established by the Ginio family in memory of Hagit Adib-Ginio, who passed away in 2021. The prize is awarded in collaboration with the Association of Planners in Israel and is presented for the second time during the annual conference of the association. It is given to a student project that focuses on a professional worldview that emphasizes the needs of the individual, society, and community.
The judging panel, led by Dr. Nili Shchori, including Hagit Na'ali-Yosef, Hanna Moran, Dorit Pri, and Ehud Yustman, noted the excellent quality of all the submitted works and the deliberations that accompanied the selection process.
The judging panel highlighted that Bat-El's research work is a groundbreaking project in the field of smart city perception and innovative thinking for creating communal resilience and sustainable development in different geographical areas and a wide range of social planning issues. This is accomplished through the establishment of a smart physical infrastructure for measuring and assessing social ideas and the integration of multidisciplinary laboratory work.
The use of tools was demonstrated in the case study of the Hadar neighborhood in Haifa, using the "Social Digital Twin" technological tool, where the social issue examined was veteran citizens in an urban setting.
The contribution of this project and the implementation of this model may be a crucial step in the integration of social planning as an integral part of overall planning."
