Crowdsourcing data for a circular The Hague
Oct 12, 2018
How circular is The Hague? Find out and join our hackathon of data collection! Beauties and geeks are welcome - it's for everyone!
Please register here: tinyurl.com/citieshackathon
On 12 October we will build a dashboard for The Hague which gives insights into how we deal with waste and resources. We map all material flows in The Hague and analyse the waste streams. This project helps policy makers and citizens to get a better understanding how we deal with materials. It gives an answer to the question: how circular is The Hague?
Since there are many materials imported, used, produced and thrown away, we have to choose a few materials. We will focus on construction materials, biomass and critical materials.
We will give answers to questions like: how much construction material is imported in The Hague. And how do we "consume" these materials (where and in what buildings)? What kind of the waste streams do we have? And: What kind of critical materials are used in The Hague? How much is recycled and how much ends up in waste streams? With the visualisation you can easily see how linear or circular certain material streams are.
To create this platform, we need you. We need to collect and upload lots of data sets! You can help us doing this by joining this hackathon. We will collect data, make it more accessible and easier to understand, and upload it on the platform with help from the team of Metabolism of Cities.
Who can join? Anyone interested in the project! This event is open to all, so there is no need to be very technical minded, although if you are, you are of course very welcome!
This project is in cooperation with the platform "Metabolism of Cities". Their team will build the dashboard.
This project is part of an international cities project. Other cities participating in this initiative are Cape Town, Brussels, Milan, Montreal and Mexico City.
