MY FutureCity – Smarter. Happier. Better.

What will the city of the future be like? Will it be as smart as its burgeoning millennial generation? Will it be a truly smart city, resilient and sustainable, fit to compete globally as a hub for business, innovation and leisure?
 

A city that provides an attractive and welcoming urban environment with well-managed infrastructure and services will attract more people, capital and businesses. But this success comes at a cost. The more people move to a city, the higher would be the stress on its infrastructure and public services, leading to a struggle to meet the demand. And the harder it becomes for the city and its economy to grow in a way that’s both competitive and equitable.

Becoming “smart” is a solution to many of these problems. A smart city can manage everything from energy and transport to public health and safety more efficiently and effectively. The “smart” can act as a multiplier and assist in utilizing available resources much more optimally. Citizens can commute more smoothly, breathe fresher air and use fewer resources.

Smart cities are able to manage their services and resources in a way that gives all residents the quality of life and economic opportunities they aspire for - a great foundation for equitable, sustainable and long-term growth.

Join the panelists of this session to explore the what, how and when of developing smarter, better cities for the future.
