Idea Map: What Citizens Want. Posted by Sebastian on Dec 27, 2010 The municipality of Copenhagen has a created an online platform, which allows citizens to share their visions for the city.

Idea Map: What Citizens Want

At the website, users can submit ideas in different categories and add them to a visual 'Idea Map', A new urban plan for Copenhagen's inner city will be developed in the autumn of 2011, and 'Idea Map' is one of many elements put forward by the Municipality to generate input and democratize the political process. Related: while collaborative ideation is a really good thing, it could be interesting to see the concept developed with a little more direction and urgency in line with the OpenIDEO community.

The Future of Cities, Information, and Inclusion Over the next decade, cities will continue to grow larger and more rapidly.

The Future of Cities, Information, and Inclusion

At the same time, new technologies will unlock massive streams of data about cities and their residents. As these forces collide, they will turn every city into a unique civic laboratory—a place where technology is adapted in novel ways to meet local needs. This ten-year forecast map, The Future of Cities, Information, and Inclusion (PDF), charts the important intersections between urbanization and digitalization that will shape this global urban experiment, and the key tensions that will arise. The explosive growth of cities is an economic opportunity with the potential to lift billions out of poverty. What economic opportunities will urban information provide to excluded groups? Realizing the opportunity from urban data will require combinatorial local innovation: continuous, rapid, dirt-cheap cycles of prototyping and testing. Join the Conversation. The Battle for Control of Smart Cities. Who will own the brains of smart cities--citizens or corporations?

The Battle for Control of Smart Cities

At stake is an impending massive trove of data, not to mention issues of privacy, services, and inclusion. The battle may be fought in the streets between bands of Jane Jacobs-inspired hacktivists pushing for self-serve governance and a latter-day Robert Moses carving out monopolies for IBM or Cisco instead of the Triborough Bridge Authority.

Part 1, An Introduction I’ve spent the better part of the last four years working on approaches to online scenario planning as part of my PhD.

Three Innovations in Crowd Sourced Scenario Planning, Part 1

During this time I have designed and implemented three systems – each of which explored a different approach to crowd sourcing, engagement and online participation in futures work. I call these experiments in “large-scale participatory futures systems”. Over the next few weeks I will be writing these up for the blog.

If people are interested, I might go back and explore some of the initial inspirations for these systems, as well as speculate on where this area might be going over the next few years. The Three Systems, an Overview The first system is called “Futurescaper” and was developed in partnership with the International Futures Forum (IFF), Tony Hodgson and my friend Nathan Koren. The second system is called “SenseMaker Scenarios“. The third system is called “FogCatcher”, and was developed with Anab Jain and Jon Ardern from Superflux.

Dream a Sound Future Final Event a Huge Success. On 10/10/10 Sustainable Seattle held its Dream a Sound Future Final Event at the Seattle Center Pavilion.

Dream a Sound Future Final Event a Huge Success

The event was made possible by generous gifts from a long list of collaborators including Frog Box, Seattle Department of Parks and Recreation, SCALLOPS, Feet First, Washington Lawyers for Sustainability and a special thanks to Mike O'Brien City Council member who gave the keynote speech to launch the day. The event had twice as many entries as was our original goal and the variety and talent of the entries were astonishing. We had musical performances including original songs, raps, and music videos shot entirely in the city of Seattle. We had artistic visions of the future with a variety of mediums from oil on canvas, crayons, pen and ink, to collages, clay, and wood. The entries were pictures and words all around a concept of a more sustainable world with practical applications, dreams, and aspirations.

Which Resilient Future?

Shot.” Large brown eyes stared back at me as he spoke, with a sincerity and certainty that tied my stomach in knots. I was learning that it’s really hard talking to twelve-year olds about the future, particularly this little guy. Thinking ten years out is a stretch for many of the adults I work with at the Institute for the Future.

And now my colleagues, and our collaborators at Collective Roots and East Palo Alto Charter School, had set out to help a class of seventh graders envision their futures—their actions and their surroundings—in a decade. Most students placed themselves in their charter school’s vision of their futures: attending college, getting a job, considering careers, caring for family members (all scenes embellished richly with high-end cars). How could a child live without hope for a future? Credit: Ricardo Wang Resilience is generally defined as the ability to bounce back from disturbance and to cope with adversity.
