The Tombolo Team held our first City Partner Workshop on June 16th 2016, with experts from Leeds, Milton Keynes and The Royal Borough of Greenwich joining us to discuss the progress of the project and to shape its future.

We started the afternoon off with a recap of what the team has been working on during the last quarter particularly regarding the three data driven urban challenges we’ve been exploring with our city partners. We presented our preliminary findings on Social Isolation in Leeds, Obesity in Milton Keynes and Service Accessibility in Greenwich.

We moved on to exploring the concept of a data-driven experiment in the context of the Tombolo project and how the software we are building will best support those who are analysing urban data and systems models to support better decision making.

Our hands-on activities got the Tombolo team working closely with the city experts to road-test the Tombolo experiment creation process. From idea to specification, we prototyped potential concepts and explored how they might have impact in cities.

Our day ended with a call to engage with others who might benefit from what the project is delivering, whether they are those who analyse data, use urban models, set policy or operate public services.
