Copenhagen City: Building a Privacy Advisory Board

Copenhagen City: Building a Privacy Advisory Board

The context

The city of Copenhagen has set a high ambition of becoming a leading "smart city," while at the same time protecting the privacy of it's citizens. Technologies such as data tracking, cheap censor technology and mobile devices, promise to make our cities a lot smarter. However these kinds of solutions are based on the collection of behavioral data from citizens, so an important question remains - how do we ensure people's privacy in the smart city?

The journey

We facilitated a series of dialogues and workshops for a board of experts within technology, law, consumers, ethics, society and business. The group formulated the first set of recommendations, that will guide policy-makers when taking the first steps towards building a "smart" Copenhagen, where people will feel their privacy is respected.

The results

  • The recommendations are being used by city politicians and officials, when formulating "smart" city projects. 
  • The board members continue to advice the city in privacy questions.
  • The recommendations serve as a starting point for building rules and regulations.
