Workshop on
*“People Centered Design as engine of the smartness of people centered 
cities and territories*

*15 September 2016*
Trento, Italy

The workshop aims at fostering a dialogue between entrepreneurs, city 
planners, policy makers, researchers, technologists, experts in social 
innovation and designers on the relevance and potentialities of the 
*people centered design approach* to the development of smart cities and 
i.e. a socially-oriented and inclusive bottom-up approach that focuses 
on persons, their perceptions, motivations, expectations, desires, needs.
The challenge is to support the harmonious and continuous development of 
the ecosystems' smartness through progressive achievements that are 
relevant to individuals, the community of belonging and, more in 
general, the contexts of reference (cities, regions, etc.).

*Relevant topics:*

- participatory emergence of problems, expectations and needs;
- bottom up monitoring and benchmarking of the smartness of an ecosystems;
- centrality of the design thinking to support system design for smart 
cities/territory and smartness achievement;
- co-design, co-creation and co-development to achieve ecosystems and 
territorial smartness (strategies, processes and methodologies);
- the relevance of educational ecosystems as driver of social innovation 
and territorial development and for the dissemination of the design 
- human sustainability and resilience of the trajectories designed to 
achieve the ecosystems' smartness;
- technologies and tools supporting people centered design to achieve 
ecosystems' and territorial's smartness.

The workshop is sustained by*ASLERD* (Association of Smart Learning 
Ecosystems and Regional Development):
