This invitation-only round table is an event to be held as part of the transnational project A Charter for the Smart City, which aims to create a charter for European Smart Cities at the forefront of technological innovations.
This round table discussion is to be held as part of the transnational project A Charter for the Smart City, which aims to formulate guiding principles that help politicians to assess and steer technological innovations in European cities.
About the Event
Taking place as part of the European Green’s Conference “Cities for the Future – The Green Way” , the roundtable will draw upon the expertise of politicians and representatives from NGOs, trade unions, and technology sectors to collect examples of best practices from across Europe.
This will contribute to the development of a Charter, one which addresses the opportunities that new technologies offer for reducing the ecological footprint of cities and creating new urban commons, while also addressing the threats they might present to civil liberties and social justice.
The roundtable is an invitation-only event and will be chaired by Dirk Holemans, GEF board member and coordinator of Flemish think tank Oikos.
