Engaging the urban social fabric to take part in processes that make our cities liveable and resilient.
The success of a hackable city largely relies on the great variety of stakeholders that make up the active, social urban landscape. It is the combined potential of citizens, academics, businesses & social organizations that enable impactful changes and make our cities truly resilient, smart and attractive.
So how can we assess this potential and engage a powerful mix of urban stakeholders in a process of collaborative citymaking? What platforms exist, how do they interlink and communicate to each other and to citizens? How can the social fabric within cities collectively take part in processes of urban planning, management and social organization, to contribute to a liveable and resilient city?
Create Your Solution To The Challenges
To solve the above challenges, we recommend you take part in the Hackable Cities Workshop in the ‘Hackable Cities’ theme on Day 1, where a mix of ideas will be brainstormed and teams will be formed.
