Transparent Cities - creating a shared framework for city governments to use data and technology to be more open, transparent and participatory

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This session will focus on the efforts of five city governments: Amsterdam, Rio, Chennai, Jakarta and Sao Paulo, that are moving towards more data-driven governance and openness. Each city government has to navigate their legal and institutional framework, political willingness and the capacity to be open. However, they must also consider the state of their data and the implications on the demand for open data,the choice of technology and its influence on democratising data creation and use, and the role of citizens and intermediaries in opening up a city. The session is unique as it allows for joint conversations among government officials from the four cities as well as groups that engage with them. The discussions will be situated in the intersection of data, technology and citizen participation, and will aim to develop a policy, advocacy and implementation road map for open cities that governments can adopt to respond to their local contexts.
