City Works Campaign
City Works Campaign aims to improve quality of life in cities by mobilizing creative people to find varied solutions for urban problems.
We connect influential thinkers, tinkers, designers and software developers with government, business and community groups. And through events, competitions, roadmaps and projects, we make our cities better places to live, work and play.
Central to our work is a belief in the role of multidisciplinary creative teams and working from the ground-up to inspire and create lasting change. We also recognize that we are living in a very unique time where social networking, smartphone apps and other emerging technologies are aiding us in remarkable ways. As such, although we are the first to say that not all city problems require technology-based solutions, we get excited about and have a deep understanding of how computing can be harnessed for good.
