New Civic

shaping the
New Civic

Smart City
meets
Creative City

Citizens take part in innumerable co-creation initiatives in the private and the public domains, and more importantly in the hybrid blur where the one can’t be separated from the other.

These initiatives make use of recent concepts and developments, such as prosumer, bottom-up, peer-to-peer, start-up, social design, open design and design thinking.
From a city perspective the well-established creative city will merge with the smart city into a new ‘Co-creative City’.
From the citizen perspective the creative city and the smart city translates into the creative & smart citizen, shaping a ‘New Civic’.
