Living Networks, Urban Labs
- Day 1 (Wednesday 14 September)
- 10:00 - 12:00
- Hangar A
Creating the cities of the future is not something that can be done from an ivory tower. Real life in cities is far more complex than planners and scientists can imagine from their offices. Therefore, we need strong involvement from real citizens that can co-create the solutions of the future together. Living Labs are experimentation environments all over Europe that take on this task. The European network of Living Labs (ENoLL, http://www.openlivinglabs.eu/aboutus) unites all these Living Labs in Europe.
At the PICNIC Festival, we’ll spend a full day exploring projects done by different Living Labs in Europe. The focus is on those that deal with city-based challenges like sustainability, energy efficiency, eHealth and eMobility. This session is organized by the Amsterdam Living Lab, together with ENoLL.
