Project Details


MyNeighbourhood vision is twofold as combining a specific concept of smart city and a evocative idea of how a community can be developed at the scale of urban neighbourhoods.

The smart city vision feeding MyNeighbourhood is mainly rooted on the idea that a smart city is a city where people, citizens are the main actors of the urban smartness. In such a smart city people do not adopt technologies chosen and acquired from the ICT markets by their municipal governments; in such a smart city, the appropriation by citizens of technology solutions, even simple, frugal solutions, is strongly consequent to people needs and to their ability to develop a solution throughout interactive, dialogic, collaborative processes where the public actor and the ICT private provider are no longer linked by a buyer-seller relationship thus sidestepping the issue of vendor lock-in; in such a smart city new forms of public-private-people partnerships are developed having more the forms of alliances, synergies rather than negotiated relationships. In such smart cities new, innovative space for ICT market can be created as deeply rooted in real problems of people, in their urban daily lives, in their commitment to respond to their own needs.
