Master in Service Design Students Participate in Sharing Cities Program

14 May 2018

During the workshop called “I Listen to Your Heart, City,” Domus Academy Master in Service Design students had the opportunity to collaborate with the partners of Sharing Cities, a program funded by the European Commission within the Horizon 2020 Lighthouse Cities initiative. Students contributed ideas and proposals to the activities of Sharing Cities and its partner program, 100 Resilient Cities, for the Municipality of Milan.

The students’ goal was to design innovative ways for city administrators to listen to and collaborate with citizens on sustainability-related topics such as mobility, risk and emergency management, sharing, and community resilience.

These topics are related to macro-objectives pursued by the Municipality of Milan, such as supporting internal governance for public administration and creating collaborative platforms for citizen engagement.

Sharing Cities “aims to irreversibly change the way we think about the role of digital technology in our cities and to clarify how we all can benefit from and contribute to this transformational process,” according to its website.

It will provide the creation of intelligent and collaborative services as well as digital infrastructures in three “lighthouse” cities: Milan, London, and Lisbon (soon to be replicated in Warsaw, Bordeaux, and Burgas). These services are designed to improve urban mobility, increase the energy efficiency of buildings, and reduce carbon emissions. The program has a value of € 25 million with a goal of generating an additional € 500 million in investments.

100 Resilient Cities—Pioneered by the Rockefeller Foundation (100RC) is an initiative that is dedicated to helping cities around the world become more resilient to the physical, social, and economic challenges of the 21st century.
