Cities have increasingly monumental challenges to solve, from the digital inclusion gap to global warming. Cities need to start collaborating on solutions. Growing an Open Source ecosystem for cities that consists of both Code for computers and Code for humans.

Open Source for cities can lead to greater Code and Data sovereignty, more control over Procurement and Cost-effectivity, and create a collaborative culture where cities can build on each other.

Boris van Hoytema tells the story of how the City of Amsterdam is trying to be a good contributor to this ecosystem and how the Foundation For Public Code is trying to create a lasting infrastructure for civic code collaboration.
