City Hall must navigate competing priorities while sitting at the intersection of complex, deep-seated conflicts that evade simple solutions. The interactive session introduces an innovative approach to civic engagement to capture citizens’ voices and identify patterns that can be used to resolve structural conflicts and build more equitable cities. By developing human sensor networks, city governments can overcome partisan politics and revolutionize their role in addressing systemic problems.
