Shaping the evolution of future cities
Cities around the world are growing at an unprecedented rate. The challenges will be considerable. Not only do Cities continually need to expand, but they need to function effectively day-to-day and become resilient enough to withstand all the shocks the future will bring.
Today, a city’s ability to be competitive, whilst supporting the economic/ social wellbeing of its citizens, can be undermined by risks from climate change to infrastructure deficit, and unplanned growth to pandemics.
This programme will illustrate how governments are working with businesses and entrepreneurs to develop pioneering approaches and tailor new competencies (and technologies) to make resilience both tangible and practical for cities.
Key themes to be covered, include:
- Future proofing new build infrastructure assets for the long-term
- Making transport talk: preparing cities to be ready for connected vehicles
- Big-data, big savings (strategic asset management plans)
- Smart city technologies for future urban living
