Just saw this piece of short news, apparently the team at ARCUB sent in the application to the Ministry of Culture. I don’t know what it ended up looking/ reading like at the end, but apparently the concept they went with is InVisible City.
I have sent summaries of Futurespotters throughout as an exercise in citizen engagement, as well as a capture from the Edgesense app we are using to quickly visualize the community. Basically we are making a case that this nascent network in Bucharest can grow to prototype and research new models of working together and operate in sync with a global community. The aim would be to turn Bucharest into a hub for European citizen driven innovation. A response to a proposal continuing to build Futurespotters as part of the bid is pending, and partially depends on the city being shortlisted. Anyway, Bucharest members in the Edgeryders network are in pink below:
The Edgesense app is available here, should you want to play with it: http://edgeryders.edgesense.spazidigitali.com/
