MK:Smart Citizen Lab is part of the MK:Smart project.
Date: Monday 16 June
Time: 6pm – 7:30 pm (Refreshments from 5:30pm)
Venue: KMi Podium: Knowledge Media Institute in the Berrill Building at The Open University, MK7 6AA
MK:Smart will look at data from various sources about local energy and water consumption, as well as transport activity in MK, and use this information to tackle key demand issues in Milton Keynes. Community engagement is an essential ingredient for creating a successful smart city. Who better to suggest solutions for improving Milton Keynes than the people who live here? That’s why MK:Smart has set up Citizen Lab, which will combine local community action with a space for social innovation, when it comes to findings solutions regarding water, energy, transport and education.
This workshop is just one in a series of events in MK that give you the chance to share your ideas on how to address local infrastructure issues.
