On May 8th, 2020, Dr. Ana Berti Suman defended her thesys on “Citizen’s Sensing” online and responded to peer reviewers questions. The day before she organised an online seminar with participation from the entire world. As one of the cases (AiREAS) of her Phd study I was asked to a short background presentation. My argument of citizen’s sensing was context driven, namely from the humanitarian view of one that defends core human values such as health and healthy air. How do existing laws help AiREAS, or stand our processes in the way? Or should there be new regulatory rules to govern citizen’s taking initiative to monitor their own environment using technological aids and confronting government with their insights and results.
A cartoonist made a drawing of my arguments. The blog about the seminar and all the speakers can be read on the Tilburg University’s School of Law site.
The 24 hours non stop HEX Hackathon on April 1st in Eindhoven was a brilliant setting of about 100 creative young minds.
About 20 teams were established and 6 challenges were presented, 2 of which were proposed by AiREAS (air quality, health and city dynamics) and the AiREAS partner TNO: Smart Cities have healthy air and Future Mobility if we ban the car from the city.
11 out of 20 teams choose to work on these two challenges. They were asked not only to be creative, societal relevance and impact was also key. They were already provided with three possible lines of thought: human persuasion to change behavior (leave that car and take some alternative transport means), think of alternative means that do not impact so negatively as cars in cities, or propose redesign of the city’s infrastructure.
- Team Delft: A game to make people aware of air quality and stimulate them to walk or go by bike.
- Cool kids can’t die: Awareness on air quality for kids
- NOObs: Future mobility using LoRa
- Belgians: Lifestyle app
- Heks Hacks: People receive an energy lable for their travel choices
- D3SH: Car Surf, a new way of dynamic carpooling
- R-aware: ???
- Autopool: Event based car pooling
- Eco Score: Competition between municipalities on “best Eco Score”
- Amelioration: ???
- Gone Good: the habit of doing good
- The challenge Crackers: define instant challenges
All teams have been invited to the School of Talents to further develop their creative ideas and introduce it into society using the network of the City of Tomorrow and AiREAS with the Sustainocratic coaching skills of the School of Talents.
