Our Word of the Year choice serves as a symbol of each year’s most meaningful events and lookup trends.It is an opportunity for us to reflect on the language and ideas that represented each year.At the same time, the City saw a need to better coordinate information and communication technology (ICT) that was already in use by several departments.To address this challenge, Philadelphia set a goal to develop a comprehensive Smart City strategy.We will then shift to interactive group activities focused on two urban challenges related to economic growth and mobility.Simulating our in-house creative process and ‘learning by doing’ we will brainstorm ways to apply behavioral science to design interventions with testable real-world implications.Those that attend are encouraged to take their solutions back to their home cities to demonstrate or develop further with their smart mobility partner(s).Cities–governments, public agencies and officials, and the private companies that support them–collect large amounts of data on things like traffic flows, property values, crime statistics, and more.
But what people do in our cities is often left out of this process.
We are proud to be part of Smart Cities NY and happy to provide visiting delegations with an opportunity to experience the urban tech ecosystem at the Urban Tech [email protected] Central Tech.
If you are interested in using the Working Lounge please RSVP to reserve a space.
The goal of this workshop is to introduce participants to the latest technologies, techniques and tools to create simple affordable smart & green mobility solutions for their home cities or companies.
This process will prove how quickly cities and companies can identify, solve and share viable “traffic” solutions globally.
