The digital twin project of Windsor & Detroit is an initiative to build an advanced urban planning tool that is accessible to the community. Spearheaded by Geopogo Cities, this project looks to create a powerful public tool that combines the 3D digital twin of the city, civic data layers, and SimCity-like features. Ultimately, the goal is to empower the public by providing a platform through which they can visualize their ideas for what Windsor can become.
The current iteration was created through partnerships with students from St. Clair College in Windsor and UCBerkeley in California. Now, the developers are inviting YOU to become part of this unique and ambitious project.
Tune in on Friday, February 11 at 6pm EST to learn more about the Digital Twin of Windsor and Detroit, and how you can get involved.

Technology has a role to play in the climate crisis, and it’s up to creators to decide exactly what that role will be. Will tech contribute to the warming faced by our planet, or will we use it to hold corporations – and ourselves – accountable? Could tech reverse the damage that has already been done?
To get us thinking more about how tech and climate change intersect, we’ve invited Mark Bartlett from The Climate Reality Project Canada in to discuss climate science, including what we’re currently experiencing and where we’re headed.
Following Mark’s presentation we will have an open discussion on what we can do as a group to positively influence the climate crisis.
