Revitalizing Public Spaces Through the Power of Technology

Panel Dialogue

The increased use of technology in the public realm has park leaders wondering about new ways to engage community members, enhance users’ experiences, and improve the management and planning of public spaces through tech and data.
This panel dialogue will offer lessons from cities in the High Line Network’s Tech & Public Space Accelerator, funded by the Knight Foundation. Throughout 2023, the High Line Network worked with its 40+ members to identify priority tech needs across park management organizations of varying tech capacities. The High Line Network also supported four tech-based pilot projects in Detroit, New York City, Philadelphia, and Toronto to address them. Panelists from a selection of those organizations will speak about the lessons learned from these projects and the future of technology in public spaces.
