In the smart cities of the future, residents take central stage. Considering their potential and including the local community in the city planning process is the easiest and cheapest way to create a better place for everyone. Cities of the future should not put technology first and technology cannot be an end in itself in solving contemporary urban problems. Furthermore, even the most advanced technology is just a tool, not a goal to improve the quality of life for residents. However, this does not mean rejecting the possibility of beneficial changes in the city's functioning, guaranteed by modern technological solutions.

If you are eager to talk and learn more about these questions, then come to the next edition of the Urban Development Forum in Poznan on 10-11 October. The opportunities and challenges for smart cities of the future in the era of rapid technological progress and changes in the natural environment, the opening of smart cities to social smart innovations and creating them together with users will be discussed. Experts and practitioners including Mayor of Poznan Jacek Jaśkowiak will meet to exchange ideas.

The forum is built on three thematic blocks: Intelligent solutions including residents (Smart Inclusive City Actions), Intelligent forms of social communication (Open Smart City Actions) and Intelligent, clean energy technologies (Energy Cleantech Smart City).

Participation in the conference is free of charge. Find more information and register via this link.
