A smart and sustainable city, at the heart of human networks
The cities that have made the strongest mark in history are those that have successfully brought people together to create, to initiate, cities that have been more open than others; innovative cities have always been at the heart of human networks.
The different social, economic and environmental challenges that cities are currently facing need to be addressed not only at a local level, but also on a wider scale. Cities can no longer be defined simply by their borders. New technologies and their adoption can provide the link between the approaches of urban planning departments and the involvement of citizens.
the metamorphosis of cities through the urbanisation of technologies
A genuine policy of « sustainable » urbanisation of smart technologies and architecture will transform public space and enhance the city through new integrated services.
Architects and planning authorities must link sensor networks and social networks, by integrating all areas (energy, water, waste, transport, security, health) thus enabling citizens to play a real and active role in their smart and sustainable city.
collective intelligence at the heart of the smart city
Technical and social innovations offer the possibility to increase public space centred around the commitment of citizens, creativity and coherence.
In the context of a separation between economic growth and social progress, and where public investment drives private investment, the new approach of partnership governance is based on consultation with residents and stakeholders in territorial development.
The smart city of the 21st century is moving towards a more social space, a space where projects are shared and where the level of communication and cooperation among citizens is evidence of the modernity of a city.
Innovative City Convention 2013, the meeting place and think tank for the smart and sustainable city, will address these fundamental topics through reports and expertise of international actors.
Speakers from both the public and the private sphere will share their experiences with the aim of continuing to work together in transforming neighbourhoods, villages, cities, metropolises and activity zones into smart cities.
