From smart thinking to smart action
Demographic developments and environmental challenges put new demands on the way we think and develop our cities. More than half of the world’s population currently lives in cities; by 2030, two-thirds will be urban dwellers; and by 2050 it is estimated that over 70% of the world’s population will live in cities. The concept of smart city is therefore not a nice aspiration, but a necessary turn in the way we think, develop and grow our urban environment.
The question is, how do we take on this challenge, through governance, in concrete projects and in newly built urban structures, as Ørestad, that might have some of the the best possibilities to transform ‘smart’ from something we talk about becoming, to something we actually do – together.
At this conference you will meet practitioners and experts that will:
- Provide a macro-level perspective on smart cities
- Give concrete examples from city districts on challenges and success factors in the collaborative process
- And on a micro-level, discuss Ørestad. How can smart city technology improve Ørestad? Where to start? Who should be involved? Priorities?
