Creating a Smart City powered by the community:
what does success looks like?
The Sustainable Development Lab was set up in January 2015. Our mission is to understand how local authorities can create a Smart City powered by the community. In the last 18 months we have addressed themes from waste management to climate change, from social isolation to domestic violence. We have co-produced technology solutions with teams from Leeds City Council, residents across the city and a band of technologists. We have also begun the process to deploy pilot projects with older residents, families and school children.
Breakfast briefing on July 5
How does this approach work at a strategic level? What does community engagement look like? What about the business case? Through our experiments, successes and failures we have begun to gather evidence of what a community powered Smart City can be. Our collaborators from the private and public sector will share their point of view and answers to these questions. The briefing will offer inspiration, ideas and examples that you can apply.
