 +Toby Laurent Belson spoke from the perspective of local communities,​ and Richard Lee, of Reclaim our Spaces, noted 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.

 +###Mapping the mappers
  
 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. That map now includes others interested in Networked City. [It is available here](https://​commonspace.co.uk/​map/​london-mappers),​ password protected, to those on the map. Screenshot below. 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.
