Urban Thinkers Campus 5.0 – Citizen Action lab for Safe and Inclusive Cities – 10&11 Sept 2020

Citizen Action lab for Safe and Inclusive Cities

Goal – Action lab for citizens to develop a framework of indicators for Safe and Inclusive Cities

Session description:
Cities often lack disaggregated data for decision making and indicators for measuring performance. In order to effectively implement projects on safe and inclusive cities, it is critical to co-create and develop a multi-sectoral process for identifying indicators and collecting data to measure success. Through this action lab we will understand some of the existing frameworks and good practices in community organizing for engaging civic authorities in local change.

Session Objectives:
– Identify existing indicators for safe and inclusive cities & put a spotlight on organizations and leaders leading such efforts
– Crowdsource Citizen indicators for safe and inclusive communities on a collaborative web app.
– Invite citizens to drive change in their communities by drafting, endorsing and implementing these indicators via citizen Manifesto
