Capture-cover-guidebookThroughout the whole duration of the GuiDanCe project, both physical and online training activities were organised to support signatory cities in overcoming implementation barriers and challenges encountered at the local level. A publication was prepared to report in a simple but efficient way on the achievements and lessons learnt.

Peer-to-peer learning is an excellent instrument for improving the implementation of cities’ policies and strategies. It is based on the idea that people who work on similar issues and have similar roles and working background in their cities can share experiences and learn from each other. ‘Peers’ share a common understanding of and interest in implementing smart and digital projects and policies. In many ways, they ways similar challenges, need to find solutions to similar problems and look for corresponding solutions, projects and alliances.

Untitled ‘Peer-to-peer learning for cities’, GDC guidebook presents six methods of training and peer-to-peer learning, each one with its own strengths and advantages. For each method, the publication explains the format, objectives and different steps to follow for organising a successful training event. Examples from GuiDanCe training activities are there to illustrate all approaches.

data-protection-lockersAs from May 2018, the new EU general data protectino regulation (GDPR) will take effect. As a direct result, all EU cities are asked to appoint a data protection officer (DPO) and to implement a series of new rules and practices.

On Monday 22 January 2018 in Brussels, the GDC/GuiDanCe project is organising a technical training for cities’ digital experts on the implementation of the EU general data protection regulation (GDPR).

The training will be followed by the conference ‘Imagine the Urban Future: Innovation, Collaboration, Trust’ jointly organised by the Green Digital Charter and EUROCITIES’ Knowledge Society Forum (KSF).

Learning objectives?

This training is designed to help EUROCITIES’ members and GDC signatories to understand the concepts and processes necessary for the data management chain within a city administration to deal with citizens’ privacy while delivering smart services. Participants will learn how to conduct a privacy impact assessment (PIA) based on specific and concrete use-cases (dataset, application, service) brought by participants from their own city.

Who can participate?

Participation is free and open to city officers, especially DPOs and data officers of local public authorities;

Your city is facing privacy challenges in the implementation of a measure or project? Bring your example with supporting documents such as datasets. Four use-cases will be selected and presented to the audience.

We are looking for officers with understanding of a particular service or application, e.g. functional understanding (what the service or application does), technical understanding (how it is implemented) and a deployment understanding (who and how it is operated).

 

To propose a data scenario from your city, contact us by Friday 15 December (COB).

Participation is limited. Register now at http://bit.ly/2BHJnkM.

Registration to the first NiCE training to allow interactive learning to support cities in the implementation of the Charter commitments is now open. 

 

The reduction of a city’s ICT footprint by 30% is a key GDC commitment and the first NiCE training session is designed to help cities with measurement of their ICT footprint and to highlight winning actions which contribute to the commitment.

The training is open to all cities, Green Digital Charter signatories and beyond, and will include:

– a broad introduction to the subject of carbon footprinting,

– an update from the ITU on latest developments in international standards for measuring ICT footprints,

– an introduction to the NiCE ICT reporting tool,

– city experiences in measuring their ICT footprint,

– networking and experience sharing opportunities.

Delegates will leave with a greater understanding of what needs to be done to measure the ICT footprint of a city, as well as being introduced to relevant methodologies and tools.

Registration is open now at http://nicetraining_measuringgreenit.eventbrite.com

Please see the registration link for more details on the programme, logistics and conditions for cost reimbursements.
