Community Innovation Lab Presentations | Dec. 3

Graduate students from Harvard's Community Innovation (CI) Lab will give final (nine) presentations - 'realizable' proposals to important local issues - all featuring technological solutions.  Three of the proposals focus on Uphams Corner.  Others look at DSNI issues and the Orchard Gardens Residents Association.

CI Lab stands for "Community Innovation Lab," a course facilitated by two Harvard University Schools and the City of Boston Mayor's Office of New Urban Mechanics.  At the outset of the course, community partners paired with CI lab graduate students and identified important local issues.  The graduate students then worked collaboratively to develop what they call "realizable" proposals which feature technological solutions.  

Following the course completion, the Mayor's New Urban Mechanics Department has the responsibility to follow-up with community partners for the implementation phase.

Community partners include:

  • Dudley Street Neighborhood Initiative
  • Uphams Corner Main Street
  • Orchard Gardens Residents Association

The "local issues" all relate to challenges associated with each of these groups.
