By the end of 2018, City Protocol ended. The common solutions and principles are still relevant. Therefore, you can still find these useful insights on this page.
Cities have become the key nodes of the global economy, acting as magnets for the new hyper-connected communities. They play a singular role as hubs of innovation and sources of universal flows of information—produced by people, things and the interactions between them. How can cities approach these challenges and adopt sound financial strategies to become more livable and self-suficient, with empowered citizens?
1) A collaboration and knowledge sharing framework for the development of a new science of cities.
2) Establishment of the basis for the evaluation and accreditation of standards and recommendation documents for city transformations.
3) A set of methods and tools for system-level data analysis and representation, and a city knowledge base into specific learnings.
4) A ‘city language’ and set of common images for describing the City Anatomy.
5) Building a repository of documents describing projects, policies and recommended practices which may be tested in cities working and learning together to tackle their common transformational challenges.
6) A network and/or platform for education and knowledge sharing among all members.
