Denis Roio, better known as Jaromil, builds tools for modern citizen activists. How do these instruments work? For whom? And, most importantly, how can we use it in Eindhoven? During this evening, Jaromil will talk about the European project D-Cent, a collection of online instruments facilitating new forms of urban democracy.

Denis "Jaromil" Roio is CTO and co-founder of the think&do tank Established in 1999 and based in Amsterdam, is home to a community of digital artists, critical makers and free software developers with a strong focus on algorithmic sovereignty, decentralization and independent media practices.

A City as Smart as Its Citizens

Eindhoven aims to be a smart society – a city where technology helps to bring residents together, enables us to have some control over our environment, and helps residents and local government to work together. But how can we achieve this? What exactly does it mean? And are there examples to show us how it should and shouldn’t be done?

In the event series A City as Smart as Its Citizens, we’ll examine different aspects of the smart society. Each evening will begin with a talk by a speaker from the Netherlands or abroad. Then the audience and special guests will discuss how the issue under discussion plays out in Eindhoven. 

The series is organised by the DATAstudio Eindhoven, an initiative of the city of Eindhoven and Het Nieuwe Instituut that looks at how the smart city can become a truly smart society.
