1.4 Approaches to citizen engagement

You’ve seen some different approaches to engaging citizens in smart cities in the course so far. Now you will start to think about how these relate to your own community.

Activity 1 Thinking about citizen engagement in your community

Timing: Allow about 10 minutes

What do you think about these different approaches to engaging citizens? Would any work well in your own community?

Perhaps you’re already aware of smart projects working with citizens where you live. If so, write a brief summary considering what form of citizen engagement they are using.

If you’re not aware of any smart projects, you could do some research to see if there are any local projects or spend some time thinking through what would be useful to the place you live.
