Event description

Description

Save the date, and your place, for the Open Cities Summit 2018! This official pre-event to IODC 2018 will focus on how open cities can move into the future. We'll be providing more information on content, programming, and logistics in the next few weeks, but in the meantime sign up here to save your spot for the event!

At this year's Open Cities Summit, we invite the international community to reflect on progress towards open cities since the 2016 summit. We will reflect on the 8 challenge areas defined in the previous Open Cities Summit and showcase exciting trends in open data solutions to urban development and smart city problems. Advances in open data and civic tech, as well as smart city solutions, promise an even greater potential for governments to provide better services while promoting transparency and accountability. However, recent data breaches have awoken citizens to privacy and equity issues worldwide, while smart city and AI vendors are promising turnkey solutions for all of a city's problems.

There has never been a better time to talk about values of openness, transparency, and accountability, as they relate to our urban environments.. At this important moment, we will define the next set of challenges for the 2018-2020 period, to drive global collective action in furthering openness in our cities.
