Alex Aylett, our Senior Associate, interviews David Eaves, an internationally recognized consultant and activist on green urbanism. His article below was written for Siemens Sustainable Cities Community.
Earlier this Summer I blogged about what providing open access to public data could do for urban sustainability. Since then New York held its first green hackathon, and Montreal is set to follow suit.
The overlap between the green cities and open data movements is something of a terra incognita: there’s lots of potential, but we are only just starting to explore it.
I recently caught up with open data expert David Eaves to talk about green urbanism and open data in more detail. Based in Vancouver, Eaves is an internationally recognized consultant and activist in the field.
