Help the Mayor of London shape plans for Smart London
Theo Blackwell, the Mayor of London’s new Chief Digital Officer for London wants to maintain London’s lead in data and innovation. Together with the Mayor’s Smart London Board, they have opened the Listening Exercise for a new Smart London Plan, to be launched at London Tech Week in June.
The Mayor is asking the tech community, citizens and practitioners what can be done to ensure better digital collaboration across London’s boroughs and public services, better data-sharing, improved connectivity and digital skills, and to ensure that technology is designed around citizens’ needs.
Over the next few months City Hall wants to speak with hundreds of experts from research, businesses , investors in tech and thousands of citizens about London’s digital future. They will be drawing on the best examples nationally and internationally, in partnership with Bloomberg Associates.
The Mayor is asking for the help of the angel and earl stage investment community to shape London’s plans on how to approach city-growth pressures with data and digital technologies, and to do so together.
