The second invitation-only workshop as part of the 2019 A Charter for the Smart City project, which aims to create a charter for European Smart Cities at the forefront of technological innovations.

Event Background

This invitation-only workshop is the second event to be be held as part of the 2019 transnational project A Charter for the Smart Citywhich aims to create a charter to assess and steer technological innovations in European cities.

About the Event

Following on from the first workshop held in Brussels in March, in which EU-level actors contributed to the drafting of the proposed charter, this closed workshop will take place in Brno, Czech Republic and will focus on the input of contributors from Central and Eastern Europe. It will be chaired by GEF board member Michal Berg.

Invitees will include experts from academic fields and technology sectors, as well as politicians, from the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Austria, and other parts of the region.

The aim is to draw upon the invitees’ expertise to eventually develop a Charter, which addresses the opportunities that new technologies offer for reducing the ecological footprint of cities and creating new urban commons, but also the threats they may present to civil liberties and social justice.

The event will be divided into two main sessions:

  • Firstly, all experts will have the opportunity to comment on the draft version of the charter and feed into it.
  • In a second session, the workshop will focus on the most controversial issues identified in the first part and provide space for more in-depth discussions.


Organised by the Green European Foundation, with the support of Institute for Active Citizenship.
