Smart Cities For and With People Masterclass


There might be digital clouds and big data, but everyday life unfolds at eye level. How can we integrate the digital in planning by creating cities for people that use the technology available? And how can we use digital tools to include people in city planning? These are some of the questions, Birgitte Svarre from Gehl will reflect upon in her talk.
