The Ethical Smart City Toolkit is a set of tools that have been created and curated to supplement the 5-step process of the ESC Framework.
The tools of the ESC Framework facilitate the application of the five-step process in your municipality. With these tools, stakeholders can strategically collaborate and communicate with each other throughout the process. The tools are accompanied by instructions and have been designed so that you and your communities can use them easily without external facilitation.
Tools guide Smart City Champions to achieve the desired outputs throughout the process. These tools have been customized to supplement the Framework so that the process can steer the thinking toward creating Smart City Solutions that uphold communities’ values and needs. These curated and created tools aid municipalities in the process of developing Ethical Smart City solutions for their municipalities. Embedded with prompts and spaces for answering them, the tools provide the structure for what stakeholders should be thinking about at every step of the Framework.
