Smart Cities Week: Shape Your Cities Future

Smart Cities Week® connects city leaders to technology and innovation which allows them to meet the needs to their citizens while being agile, responsive, resilient and sustainable.

 

At Smart Cities Week® over 1,400 (inter)national, state and local government officials, utilities, policymakers, financiers, technologists, non-profit and trade groups, business leaders, academics, researchers and citizen organizations attended – all with a common goal of working together to develop and build a better future for cities and their citizens.

 

Developed by the Smart Cities Council, the recognized leader in smart cities education, the event highlights best practices breaking down barriers to progress and instilling a culture of collaboration — cross-cutting solutions that public officials can use to create a holistic, integrated approach to improve livability, workability and sustainability in their communities.

 

You will see, hear and experience showcase demonstrations of the next wave of innovative, integrated technologies that are helping cities save money, build more robust economies and enhance citizens’ lives.

 

Smart Cities Week® is your opportunity to learn about, see and be inspired by the smart technologies that are already working in cities just like yours. Smart Cities Week® will give you knowledge, insight and proven ideas that you can put to work right away.

 

Building off the success of last year’s inaugural event – which the White House kicked off with the Office of Science and Technology Policy’s announcement of a $160 million smart cities initiative – Smart Cities Week will connect cities to technology and innovation, allowing them to meet the needs of their citizens while being agile, responsive, resilient and sustainable.

 

City leaders will have an opportunity to see, hear and experience the next wave of innovative, integrated technologies that are already helping cities around the world become more compassionate, connected and sustainable.

 

Smart Cities Week will focus on three key themes:

  • Connectivity: Improving connections with citizens as well as between key stakeholders
  • Climate: Combining technology and innovation to make cities more sustainable and resilient
  • Compassion: Using digital technology to reduce suffering and improve the lives of all citizens
