From the 17th to the 19th of November, the 5th edition of Barcelona Smart City Expo will take place, approaching solutions for future issues related to urban growth with the following themes: smart society, technology, governance, energy, mobility and sustainable city.
Come and discover the city of tomorrow.
With world population and urbanization growth, our limited resources, and climate change, we need to find solutions to live in more sustainable way in the fields of energy and pollution.
Renewable energy, energy and food production and storage, smart electricity grid, green buildings and new regulations in energy trading will be approached to find ways to create a sustainable way of life.
Technology has significantly changed our everyday life in various aspects. Social networks and the Internet provide us an easier access to mobility, communication and information. Tomorrow, technology will have to handle this huge quantity of data to improve the cities organization, infrastructures, and social and economic development in a global view to enable all citizens to benefit from these improvements.
The solutions proposed in the Smart City Expo will be related to global vision, apps and new machines to improve our everyday life, mobility, and infrastructures.
A smart city also needs a smart and responsible society. The aim is to set the citizen in the heart of the city and make him contribute and take initiatives in the creation of a more sustainable city with a better quality of life. Actor and beneficiary of these improvements, the citizen will completely be part of the smart city, creating more social cohesion.
Discover innovations in the fields of public safety, equity, empowerment of the citizen, social well-being, creativity and collaboration.
Technological improvement of public transports (real time data, shared services…) to reduce the use of cars and CO2 emissions, electric vehicles, structures to encourage and facilitate the use of bikes in the city, building cities more adapted to the pedestrian, these are the challenges we have to face to create the ideal city of the future for a more pleasant life in urban areas.
Various exhibitors address on these issues in creative and innovative ways.
Propositions of ideas for a more transparent governance, accounting data in open access for the citizen to be informed in real time, focus on municipal and regional government with ability for the citizen to participate and have an influence on the decisions for a more democratic, equal and responsible society, these are the topics that will be approached to create the smart world of tomorrow.
