Abstract

New solutions sometimes face challenges in acceptance as improvements and active citizen engagement plays a key role of resilient smart city development. This paper describes a set of actions in Helsinki as part of mySMARTLife project that are aimed to engage citizens in interaction. The actions range from online services and mobile applications to hands-on equipment implementations. They are mainly described from the technological but also from an economic and a social point of view. All the activities are connected to the Helsinki action plan to render the city carbon neutral by 2035. Motivation through positive experience requires practical solutions and reachable goals for approval and impact in smart cities progress.
