For 5 years, City Mine(d) has been connecting urban gardeners to cyclists, DIY-ers to urban planners, and kitchen chefs to IT-ers through projects in public space. What these people have in common is their use of their creativity to make daily life in cities more enjoyable.
In November 2010, about 30 of these initiatives from
21 cities, gathered in Brussels in an Urban Platform,
to exchange and show their relation to these big
challenges, present their approach and inspire people
After the event, the initiatives stayed connected through an ONLINE COMMUNITY consisting of
a platform http://platform.citymined.org where they announce their future initiatives.
