CitizenCity

Our Ambition

Main Goal: Develop Tools and Platforms to make citizens central in the delivery of smart projects 

Context

CitizenCity represents the advocacy of the citizenry of cities in the process of city making. This includes promoting inclusive understanding of citizens, beyond gender-race-religion to include all users of cities as customers – residents, day workers, resident non-nationals, refugees, tourists, entrepreneurs and businesses. The second element is creating innovative scalable and sustainable platforms that bring these populations into the place-making process. The two primary projects are: 

  • A societal engagement toolkit
  • a digital platform for place based citizen engagement 

CitizenCity Societal Engagement Toolkit (SET) is a tool inspired by the ‘European Manifesto on Citizen Engagement’, which aims at facilitating the implementation of its principles, amongst others to bridge the needs of cities with the supply of available tool resources.

City

The Digital Place-based Citizen Engagement is an initiative aimed at developing an innovative platform to engage citizen digitally and connect them.

Status and Forward Plans 

Continue through collaborative design workshop the development and refinement of SET into a working beta solution to be tested by cities. The digital place-based citizen engagement will also move from concept to a clear business plan. Our approach is inclusive and open to everyone can contribute with innovative ideas to our plan; thus, webinars and collaborative workshops will be organised throughout the ’17 winter fall and ’18 spring fall.
