The first Urban Thinkers Campus in Sicily – titled “City as a Service” and organized by PUSH- took place this October (from 8th until 10th) at Cantieri Culturali alla Zisa, in Palermo.
The aim of the Campus was to better understand how ICT and service design can work together and re-imagine the city, especially in less globalized contexts, debating the role of the key players involved: urban communities, researchers, entrepreneurs and local authorities.
The three day event was attended by many local and international guests; depending on the topic of the day were present representatives of civil society, research institutions and companies: all contributions have enriched the debate and there was an active participation both during the morning plenary sessions and during the afternoon parallel sessions (in smaller groups and more interactive).
The Campus was a great opportunity to meet people and share ideas.
