DRIVING INCLUSIVE ADOPTION
OF LIVING LABS

The City of The Hague invites you to help in the challenge of giving all citizens and companies a reason to interact with the public digital ecosystem of the city in order to improve livability, democratic representation and societal engagement.

Find out below what you can do and how you can participate in Odyssey Momentum, November 13-15, 2020.

An invitation to get involved

During Odyssey Momentum, November 13-15, five selected teams will build new solutions to the challenge of the City of the Hague. We invite you to join the online environment to see what teams are working on, interact with their ideas, and contribute to new solutions that are valuable for you.

Therefore, the City of The Hague is inviting everyone: citizens, tourists, emergency workers, shop owners, policymakers, and many other stakeholders to work with the teams, be the first to test and give feedback to the solutions, and then help launch the best solutions after the event. 

WHY WE'RE LOOKING FOR YOUR HELP

Just as physical space itself, we want The Hague digital space to be inclusive, to invite engagement and to add positive 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.
Driving Adoption of Living Labs Impact

Our Living Lab in Scheveningen is the 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 digital innovations. The physical infrastructure of the living lab has been realized. Now we need the digital layer on top that would allow a vibrant digital ecosystem to emerge. We have already defined a set of roles and functionalities open to discussion and are looking for teams to help us fill this in with concrete tools.

 We assist teams by providing 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

Providing the tools for everyone to engage and contribute to a better, livable city with decisions based on fully transparent information, aiming to improve livability, protect nature, accelerate business and strengthen our democracy.

WHAT WE ARE BUILDING

The challenge for the teams and everyone helping them:

“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.”
