Workshop on raising citizen awarenness on Open Data

The workshop was co-chaired by Daniel Pop, West University of Timisoara and Yannis Charalabidis, University of the Aegean. The workhop touched upon ways to enhance citizen participation and engagement in reusing open governmental data. Several experiences to boost opendata uptake by citizens and entreprises were presented and discussed, resulting in a set of proposed "ways": Way #1: Give them a "home" An open data portal has to offer the ability to citizens / users to create and maintain a profile Way #2: Make them customers / Create an Open Data marketplace When a citizen cannot find the dataset he is looking for, he can put a request that is channeled to the appropriate administration.

Open Models : un livre à soutenir sur les modèles économiques alternatifs

C’est particulièrement important pour les projets utilisant des licences libres ou ouvertes, dont la soutenabilité doit être assurée par des modèles innovants. C’est la raison pour laquelle l’année dernière, je m’étais joint au projet Open Experience, lancé par Without Model. Il s’agissait d’organiser une série de rencontres-débats autour de la question des modèles économiques de l’Open, déclinée selon différents champs : Art & Culture, Logiciel, Education, Science, Manufacturing et Data.

Rethinking Engagement in Cities: Ending the Professional vs. Citizen Divide

Ruble Cities are among humankind’s grandest and most complex creations. Even small urban communities represent the cumulative result of literally hundreds of thousands of public and private, individual and collective decisions over time. They are the playgrounds of spontaneity. Such an understanding of how cities come into being and evolve is hardly new.

We need not look back so far. Since the financial crisis of 2008, a plentiful number of urban professionals around the world – including economists, planners, architects, and administrators of all types – have dismissed citizen participation as an extravagant expense that only gets in the way of efficient urban management. Ironically, the lessons in recent years that have emerged from post-disaster experiences point in precisely the opposite direction. How can we explain this division between empirical lessons learned on the ground and the view from the commanding heights of professionalism?

It’s not a traditional election. Rather, residents are voting for project proposals put forth by their fellow neighbors in this years round of participatory budgeting (PB). Ten out of fifty one New York City Council members put forth part of their discretionary budgets for the public to decide – totaling over $14 million in taxpayer dollars. Fall 2014, roughly twenty-two Council members are slated to participate in this process backed by Mayor de Blasio and Speaker Mark-Viverito – who helped usher in the New York City process.

The Participatory Budgeting Project serves as New York’s technical lead and Community Voices Heard as the community engagement partner. Voting sites have been in creative locations throughout New York City this week. Residents designed the very projects being voted upon. Like traditional voting, the results from today’s election are binding. Charte de Démocratie Ouverte.
