Urban regions are being forced to adapt and evolve.
A myriad of structural issues in cities has left municipalities with reduced monetary resources and limited capacity to support its citizens.
Grassroots organization has its place but is often unable to effectively form consensus or adequately fund the urban solutions.
Private interests have little motivation to take on infrastructure problems or historically non-profit issues.
Our capacity to improve resilience in dense urban cities are limited, because we do not have the tools to connect and collectively improve where we live, work, and play.
Urban Parti incubates technology that maximizes participation and engagement in a neighborhood or district. We believe that participation can enable coordination the forming of consensus around urban issues typically moderated by municipalities.
How does Urban Parti work in a neighborhood or district?
1) Substantial adoption of technical tools that enable participation and engagement.
2) Purposeful education across the socioeconomic spectrum in the direction of neighborhood self-governance.
3) Development and implementation of consensus protocols and coordination mechanisms for ultimate resiliency.
These form the basis of a future where stakeholders in urban districts can participate in, decide on and administer their own destiny.
