Data is now the nervous system of our cities, but have we absorbed the implications of what that means for our legal frameworks and governance systems? Our digital world has opened up countless opportunities for greater efficiency and connection, but it has also come at a cost: Who owns the digital platforms? Can they be trusted? How can data become a public good?
In this conversation we hear from conceptual pioneers, creative practitioners and legal experts who are challenging existing regimes and advocating for commons-based, citizen-driven approaches to making places that work for all.
This session is part of a 5-part series run by the BMW Foundation Herbert Quandt’s ‘RISE Cities’ programme. RISE Cities explores the leadership required to enable our urban environments to be more resilient, intelligent, sustainable and equitable (RISE).
