The smart cities movement is gaining more momentum with city leaders, planners, businesses, NGOs and consumers engaging in meaningful conversations about sustainable cities and thriving communities as the majority of the world’s population now lives in cities—for the first time ever. By 2030, 6 out of 10 people will live in a city and the trend will only increase*, putting strains on city infrastructure. This will require more creative thinking and collaboration than ever.

Getting a smart city program off the ground, addressing energy and water challenges and applying technology to solve real-world problems may seem daunting. Where do you start? How do you get the right people involved? What technology is out there? How can it be applied? This webinar aims to share insights and point you to the tools and information needed to influence your city’s future.
