Opening up the smart city
What if every citizen had access to the same information as their local government? The smarticipate project aims to use open data to make this a reality, giving citizens the information needed to help shape their city. By making data accessible and understandable, citizens are empowered to give input on new public services and solutions to urban problems. London (Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea), Hamburg (Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg) and Rome (the City of Rome) are taking part in the three-year project, and will be closely involved in the creation of a web platform that enables interested citizens to support the decision making process. The project will act as a learning journey towards a more participatory form of governance.
