Data strategies for common good-oriented urban development
National Dialogue Platform Smart Cities presents guidelines and recommendations for action to develop data strategies for urban development oriented towards the common good.
The presentation of the guidelines and recommendations for action on “Data strategies for common good-oriented urban development” marks the end of a one and a half year long process of the National Dialogue Platform. Representatives from the federal, state and local governments, leading social and municipal associations as well as representatives from academia and civil society examined the question of data governance from the perspective of urban development in various workshops and meetings and thus want to contribute to the debate of the Smart City Dialogue.
With the guidelines and recommendations for action on data governance, the National Dialogue Platform Smart Cities concretises the Smart City Charter published in 2017 and continues the strategy process for the development of common good-oriented smart cities in Germany.
In addition to a value-oriented approach to data, the guidelines and recommendations for action also highlight access to and use of data and explain how data use for urban development can be made transparent, participatory and co-creative. The topics of data competencies and data cooperation, as well as the prerequisites for successful municipal value added strategies, are also addressed.
Unfortunately, the guidelines and recommendations for action are currently only available in German.
