The Smart City Kitchen

About: David Tuinzing

Co-Founder www.smartcitiesstrategies.com
and founder of The Smart City Kitchen. ----------------------------------------------------

David believes that collaboration between urban stakeholders is the key factor to a smart city. David advises, teaches and writes about collaborative urbanism, networked cities, change management, and social & economic development. His career combines academia and practice in consultancy projects, and involves forging partnerships between sectors, systems, projects and people.

He developed several urban recipes for urban areas like Rotterdam Central District, Kop van Zuid (Wilhelminapier), and the city of Leiden. Through studies at the University of Groningen, David has expertise and interests of both technical (spatial science) and economic (Msc. RE) systems in the city.

Cities have been cradles of civilization for 8,000 years. So if we redefine how and where cities are created, we’re redefining who we are, how we got that way, where we’re headed and what makes us tick.
