City of Tomorrow Challenge – Community Workshop (co facilitated by OpenIDEO) – Designing Around Perspectives – Register via EventBrite Link
July 31, 2018 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm EDT
How might we enable daily journeys that are fresh, easy and adaptable to the needs of Miami-Dade residents?
We invite you to help make our Miami more accessible, inclusive and mobile for everyone. Join us to kick off the first of four community events as part of the Miami City of Tomorrow Challenge, a new collaboration between Miami-Dade County and Ford Motor Company in partnership with AT&T, Dell Technologies, and Microsoft. These events are co-facilitated by OpenIDEO.
As more people move to cities, transportation systems are becoming stretched. We need to dramatically shift our thinking in order to redesign mobility in ways that meet growing demand and improve quality of life. We’re bringing people together from across Miami-Dade to develop a deep understanding of the experiences residents, businesses and community groups have while getting around the region.
What Can You Expect?
Our second event is designed to broaden your perspective on how people experience their journeys around Miami, helping you design inclusive solutions to make daily journeys fresh, easy and adaptable. You will have the opportunity to listen to five individuals who experience specific needs around transportation and mobility in Miami.
Our goal is to provide participants of the Miami City of Tomorrow Challenge an opportunity to gain empathy and develop profound understanding of the unique needs people face in our city around mobility and transportation. This will help participants create innovative solutions with a human-centered design approach.
During this event we will:
- Gain understanding by listening to the perspectives of five individuals on the visible and unseen barriers that affect their access to mobility and transportation
- Collaborate in small groups with other attendees in designing a solution around a need that was surfaced from one of the five individuals who shared their mobility stories
- Get to Know other Miami residents and City of Tomorrow Challenge participants who are passionate about taking action in making our city more accessible to all
Food and refreshments will be provided to event attendees.
Who Should Join?
This event is open to everyone. We encourage residents, businesses and community groups to join us and share their unique experiences.
