COST Action People Friendly Cities in a Data Rich World" organised an 8-day training school on new ways of transforming cities to better cater to people's needs, enabling them to actively participate in the cities' development.

Participants had the chance to look into the Reykjavik commune of Breiðholt and how it is becoming a thriving community.

International experts and local practitioners from various fields helped participants develop ways to address technological, social, cultural, and economic urban challenges in an interdisciplinary, people-centred manner.

The  COST Action  co-ordinates a trans-disciplinary network of experts and non-experts that investigate the alignment of the “hardware” (e.g. technology sensors, infrastructures) and “software” (e.g. governance, data driven solutions) of a city with user needs to promote well-being, good health, and a sustainable use of resources, within an evolving people-centred consultation framework for economic, social and political development.
Details on the training school outcomes can be found on the Action's website.
