Event description

Description

Collaborative Governance towards a Fossil Free Bay Area is a workshop taking place at Smart Cities NYC ‘17.

Once you register for Smart Cities NYC´17 conference and expo, you´ll receive a code in your confirmation email with which you can register for any of our workshops. You cannot sign up for workshops without registering for the Smart Cities NYC '17.

This workshop will present a series of regional and local urban systems challenges in the Bay Area, from housing and transportation to climate change and resilience, and introduce an analytical framework for holistic, accountable, and collaborative decision-making in municipal government. Participants will explore rich geospatial and historical datasets collected and prepared by the City of Palo Alto and evaluate the City’s progress towards sustainability goals. Then participants will roleplay as citizens of a local neighborhood and test collaborative governance tools, such as neighborhood dashboards and participatory budgeting, to experiment with community-led development, all the while reflecting on opportunities to replicate these results around the country.
