Event description

Description

Welcome to the 21st century New York, built by the people, for the people. In this citizen created roadmap, we outline how to humanize technology, move beyond transparency for transparency's sake, and ensure we have government technology that works for the people, built with the people.

To accomplish this, we have established four universal digital freedoms:

  • Freedom to Connect.
  • Freedom to Learn.
  • Freedom to Innovate.
  • Freedom to Collaborate.

These four freedoms are the foundation for five core pillars in our roadmap:

  • Accessible Infrastructure
  • Education and Lifelong Learning
  • Industry, Employment, and Economic Mobility
  • Effective and Open Government
  • Smarter Communities

We seek your ideas and feedback!

  • What are the current issues and trends we should address?
  • How should government address them?

In this roadmap, you will find 34 programs and opportunities that are critical to realizing a 21st century New York City. Join us for this in-person visioning session, and help write the future of NYC’s civic/community tech, open data, and civic design!

PG & CC CLUE Certified.

Refreshments will be served.

If you are interested in a deeper role, we’re looking for volunteer ushers, facilitators, writers, editors, and a few techies. Volunteer at https://betanyc.forms.fm/roadmap-volunteer
