Dr Richmond Juvenile Ehwi gave a talk on a co-creative stakeholder framework for Smart City projects at a HTA Design LLP evening event in August 2021. HTA Design LLP is an organisation of housing design specialists with expertise in areas such as community-led design, urban and estate regeneration, and modular construction.

The talk looked at current approaches to engaging citizens in Smart City development initiatives and how the failure to adopt a life-cycle approach to developing Smart City initiatives causes them to fall short. Dr Ehwi proposed that stakeholder engagement in Smart City development should adopt a four-pillar lifecycle approach which would allow different urban stakeholders to engage meaningfully in the development of Smart Cities.
