 Over the past year [we have explored](http://​networkedcity.london/​start) the idea of Networked City as a smart city that is sharing, participatory and inclusive. It's about connecting people using technology and also every other way in which we can support human interaction. Here's how Barcelona is addressing the challenge: [Building the Networked City From the Ground Up With Citizens](https://​www.shareable.net/​blog/​building-the-networked-city-from-the-ground-up-with-citizens). Over the past year [we have explored](http://​networkedcity.london/​start) the idea of Networked City as a smart city that is sharing, participatory and inclusive.

-Before ​the event we started "​mapping the mappers",​ so we had a map of who is doing what for the 27th, and the basis for a CoP and network.

[It is available here](https://​commonspace.co.uk/​map/​london-mappers)password protectedto those on the map.+Toby Laurent Belson spoke from the perspective ​of local communities, and Richard Leeof Reclaim our Spacesnoted the following key points:
  
 +* We are still not being listened to.  Communities are divided away from power and decision making and the charity sector is used as an instrument to do this.
 +* Mapping has to make a change, or it means nothing. ​ For example, to stop local spaces from being merged or closed. ​
 +* Smart City has all this technology, but it dwarves us.  If our data is gathered, what will it be used for?
 +* When will GLA realise our numbers and not belittle us?  When will they listed to us and act upon what we say?
 +* We have tried to use the mainstream media and the significant issues we raise are edited out.  This is why we need our platforms, to bring out the real stories.
