Digital Days Berne 2020
Smart cities: similarities and differences - the slightly different exchange of experiences
On the occasion of the Digital Days Berne on November 2 and 3, 2020, Smart City experts Jonathan Gimmel (City of Berne), Stephan Juen (City of Thun) and Stefan Metzger (City of Lucerne) jointly discussed Smart City activities in their cities and in particular the topic of «participation» under the moderation of Peter Geissbühler (AWK Group). In what way and at what point in time should the population be involved in the further development of a city? Does the population want to participate at all, or does a large part of the population just expect the city to simply function?
