TLA Smart Cities Unconference
Mon, April 24, 2017, 5:30 PM – 8:00 PM BST
Join the TLA Smart Cities group in the Smart Cities Unconference 2017.
The Smart Cities Unconference 2017 is an official event of the TLA Smart Cities Working Group. The primary focus of the Unconference will be on what smart cities are and how they can create, contribute and support social change. We want to better understand the actions we need to take to increase positive impact in our communities so that the promise of smart cities are delivered. Your ideas and actions will be feed into the main conference, and help us to set the goals for the TLA Smart Cities and the wider smart cities communities in London and internationally.
Why a Smart Cities Unconference?
Conferences are a great place for hearing from leaders in the field of smart cities, however they are organised in a way that is less participatory that doesn’t maximise collaboration and knowledge of the participants.
The TLA Smart Cities Unconference will be an open and safe space for us to exchange thoughts, experiences, ideas, and learn and discover together what a truly smart city is about. Out sessions will be participant driven, drawing on the interests and expertise of the attendees in a way that encourage dialog, creativity, idea exchange, and collaboration.
Who can participate?
Whether you’re a newbie to the "smart cities" world or seasoned veteran, your contribution to the discussion is essential. We encourage representatives from academia, civil society, the media, start up, representatives of communities (Generation Y, Refugees, Senior Citizens, People with Special Needs, Women, Start Ups, etc.), the public and private sector to come along!
