THE CHALLENGE

Create a data commons and marketplace mechanism, where different types of actors are incentivized and naturally start interacting with each other in the Living Lab, and where specifically civilians are empowered to own, share and earn from their data.

CONTEXT

Just as our physical space itself, we want our public digital infrastructure to be inclusive, to invite engagement and to add value to peoples’ lives.

Currently, the city’s digital layer is fragmented, not just between our municipal departments, but also between different societal actors in general. Misunderstanding and misrepresentation between people, communities, government or any other entity is a big risk to social stability, so a common accountable data layer is desired. The information can also be fuel for solving the complex challenges we face as a society and as a planet.

 Our Living Lab in Scheveningen is a first attempt at a fully connected digital layer, aspiring to make the city more aware of the needs and the activities of its inhabitants by providing a platform for co-creation processes around data. The physical infrastructure to support this platform has been installed. Now we need the digital layer on top that would allow a vibrant digital ecosystem to emerge in which we have already defined a set of roles open to discussion.

 We are looking to provide a 3D virtual twin of our city and online participation methods as building blocks, as well as direct links with experts on self-sovereign identity and decentralized data exchanges.

IMPACT

Making everyone as smart as the entire network and allowing everyone to contribute to a better, livable city with decisions made based on fully transparent information improves livability, connects to nature, accelerates business and engages citizens.

A WINNING TEAM WILL...

Assume one or more of the emerging roles in the ecosystem, have sufficiently considered incentive, usability and the physical space, have built a prototype on top of the provided building blocks or have provided an excellent building block itself, and have actively sought collaboration with other teams in the Conscious City track, or beyond.
