New Yorkers Share Ideas for a Digital NYC in the Bronx

NYC Digital convened the Bronx Digital Roadmap Meetup on August 6, 2013 from 7-9 PM — the third in a series of participatory discussions throughout New York City focusing on gathering public feedback and input on the City’s digital growth and future.

The Bronx Meetup was generously hosted by the Sunshine Bronx Business Incubator, and representatives from the Bronx Tech Meetup presented to the larger group of about 50 participants.  

The Meetup began with a presentation of the New York City’s Digital Roadmap, and was followed immediately by five group breakout sessions that explored the five pillars of the Roadmap: Access, Education, Open Government, Engagement and Industry. At the conclusion of the event, the groups reconvened to share their top ideas and recommendations with the City.

Topics covered included support for increasing Internet access and options, strategies for implementing STEM education, creating open data standards across cities and countries, sustaining online public engagement, and fostering local tech and digital talent.  

The next Digital Roadmap Meetup will take place in Queens on Tuesday, August 13 from 7-9 PM. All are welcome – register here.
