Can technology change the consciousness of a city? Here’s an answer developed through a series of experiments run in eight cities

Every city comes with more than one label, which suggests there is room for everyone.

The first experiment: find a problem, develop a solution with and without technology and then test it in a real-life setting

The second experiment: what happens when you want to achieve a complex goal and you begin with the smallest unit of change?

Complex ideas coupled with the smallest unit of change — one person. What impact can they have using social media?
When technology is used to mediate relationships you achieve impact

The third experiment: How can technology create multiple values?

CareView allows frontline staff from different organisations report a location where one or more houses feature a characteristic of social isolation: untidy garden, mailing piling up, etc.
