The times they are a-Changifying.

Everywhere you look, there’s a new form of smart technology that promises to make our lives better. Isn’t it about time someone started thinking about how we can use it to make our cities better?

Here at Changify, we believe that all the smart technology in the world means nothing without smart people to give it a purpose.

And our purpose is simple – to start a conversation about what we can all do to change the world around us, and make our cities better places to live.

See for yourself!

Lots of people are saying interesting things about Changify.
Fortunately, sometimes there’s a camera crew around when they’re saying them.

How does it work?

Step1: Signup to the Changify trial by adding your details here. We'll get back to you via email within 48 hours. Note: This is a closed technical pilot involving 200 road users in Plymouth. Why 200? Good question. We are looking to test a community network effect based on the Dunbar number.

Looking to test the app? Come to our Plymouth friends and family meetup on 27th July at BikeSpace.

Step2: We haev 140 triallists. 60 more to go. Friends and family test group will now get the link to download and intstall the app. Once you install the Android prototype Changify app. Get notified of joining our regular events at local host businesses, cycling clubs, community events involving road-use. Go for a bike ride, run or walk. You can also do this by yourself if you cannot join the group events. Observe and take a photo with the Changify App to celebrate or improve the Plymouth road network. Have a solution? Add a comment or photo. Vote for the field-reports you'd like to see priortised.

Want to discuss more? Come back to your local host business. Have a conversation on what you saw and what you'd like see being actioned. We will have representatives from Amey and/or the Council present on scheduled dates shared in advance.

Note: For the technical trial, we are on Android. iOS users can add photos via

What happens to the submitted photos/field reports ?

Step3: Your reports are submitted for voting to 200 trialists involved in the closed trial. They vote to priortise it. Their collective votes re-order and bubble up the priority of jobs that needs doing within the network. Bigger jobs becomes projects. Projects needing more information - become group 'data challenges' The more you take part - the more points you earn which you can spend in local participating shops.

*Note: Issues reported via the app that fall into normal daily activity or require immediate attention will of course be actioned via the usual process to ensure the network remains fit for purpose. Issues that fall outside of Amey’s responsibilities will be forwarded to the appropriate council department.

Curious? Come along to our third family - friends meetup to test the app or
