Using Geocaching to engage the local community

Implementing creative, engaging techniques is crucial towards promoting a positive image of the industry.

Useful site and project information made publicly available through Geocaching helps to engage the local community and attract general interest towards the site.

Geocaching is an outdoor recreational activity, in which participants use a Global Positioning System (GPS) receiver or mobile device and other navigational techniques to hide and seek containers, called “geocaches” or “caches”, anywhere in the world.

Below is a summary of how Geocaching was used to engage with the local community:

  • A Geocache box was inserted behind a public access site notice board, easily available for any passing members of public that wanted to view the site;
  • This box contained useful information and details regarding the site and project being constructed;
  • The Geocache box was given a unique GPS location, which can be tracked online for anyone else interested in locating it.
