Citizens are an important aspect of Smart cities. A city cannot be built smart until and unless citizens do not participate in the transformation. So, know the role of citizens in building smart city. The Success of Smart city is defined only when it is accepted by its citizens as the core aim of the smart city is to build a city which is solely for its people. When we talk about the concept of smart cities then they primarily are cities which is smart enough to provide sustainable, environment-friendly urban infrastructure to its citizens where it has all smart facilities popular as smart solutions, which can ease their life.

Cities are made up of citizens. They are the main components of any city. It is not about technology or infrastructure. Infrastructure is the requirement of citizens and technology is an enabler. It is very important to ensure that citizens themselves are ready to be smart and build a smart city by involving themselves to the municipal council and are able to think through what kind of future they want for themselves. As if citizens and government envision together, implementation will be more impactful.
