The primary objective for the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea (RBKC) is to allow people to choose for themselves how the local government makes improvements to their area, particularly in terms of allocating certain budgets. The city will place a particular focus on involving citizens in improving engagement across all age groups.

The local government aims to hand over data to community groups, encouraging them to make their own apps and solutions from this. In that sense, how the data is used is entirely free. Residents will also be able to generate and verify data from their community.

For more information on how smarticipate will be used in RBKC, visit the Resources page and check out the Urban Stories.

These Urban Stories provide examples of how the smarticipate platform can be applied. While the stories themselves are based on the real capabilities of the platform, the characters in the Urban Stories are fictitious. They serve to display the type of common issues that citizens, public authorities and businesses have in urban areas, and how smarticipate can be used to help them tackle these issues.
