An invitation-only workshop to kick off the 2019 A Charter for the Smart Cityproject, which aims to create a charter for European Smart Cities at the forefront of technological innovations.
This invitation-only workshop is the first event to be be held as part of the 2019 transnational project A Charter for the Smart City, which aims to create a charter to assess and steer technological innovations in European cities.
About the Event
Bringing together politicians and representatives from NGOs, trade unions, and technology sectors, this closed workshop in Brussels, Belgium, will act as a starting point for the project by exploring the opportunities and challenges of Smart Cities.
Chaired by GEF board member & Oikos coordinator Dirk Holemans, the workshop will draw upon the expertise of the attendees to identify what is needed on an EU level, build a network of contacts and inform the drafting process of the charter.
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 Bureau de Helling and the logisitical support of Oikos.
