Resilient Cities, Smart Citizens in Rio
During the Dutch presidency of the EU, the Dutch consulate in Rio de Janeiro and the Rio Prefeitura brought together designers, civil servants, citizens and entrepreneurs for a week-long design workshop and a one-day seminar. They prototyped new designs and approaches to transforming cities, by using and enhancing the power of its citizens to take positive action.

The initiative grew out of the Amsterdam Smart Citizens Lab, launched by Waag Society in Amsterdam. In the Smart Citizens Lab, citizens explore tools and applications to map the world around them.
