Access to public services depending on individual performance measured through data surveillance
The Consumption Show is a system that benchmarks and visualizes individual citizens’ waste, energy and water performance through an open dashboard. Making this data trackable and accessible creates a new social contract on environmental responsibility, directly affecting citizenship rights. The system, thus, creates a framework for individuals, companies and governments to make decisions based on individual performance, rewarding or penalizing citizens via access (or lack thereof) to products and services.
