We are hosting multiple digital events of one hour each, all aimed at people interested in the developments surrounding smart water management and creating (climate) resilient cities. The ‘we’ in this case are the 14 organizations that shape the SCOREwater project, a Horizon 2020 funded research and innovation project with the aim to link the physical and digital world for city water management solutions.

Event information

The focus of the even of March 25 will be on: how to engage and collaborate with citizens?

Sensors are getting cheaper, more and more people are starting to measure things within the city and as a consequence a lot of data is being gathered. This session will focus on how different organizations and (citizens) collectives can work together to collaborate on these important topics. Specifically, we will address this from 3 different perspectives:

  1. The perspective of the municipality 
    [ by Huug Meijer and Anne Vrouwe from city of Amersfoort ]
  2. The perspective of a citizen science collective.
    [ By Paul Brouwer and/or Harmen Zijp of the citizen science collective Meet je Stad (Measure Your City) ]
  3. The perspective of an organization providing a digital infrastructure (platform) for collaboration.
    [ By Richard Zuijdam and/or Bas Vanmeulebrouk from Civity ]

From each perspective the following questions will get answered:

  • What is the added value of working together?
  • What are the necessary prerequisites to make the collaboration work?
  • How do the interests align, what are the challenges of such a collaboration
