IoTC Smart Cities Webinar Series | Citizen Engagement in Smart Cities
Citizen Engagement in Smart Cities: A recent Economist study of 12 global cities last year found that while residents feel empowered to guide municipal improvements in areas like social or waste services, only 15% believe that they can influence smart cities projects specifically. As corporate innovators and municipal leaders work to create efficiencies and quality of life improvements in areas including physical and digital infrastructure, public safety, transportation, traffic management, energy usage, and more, it is increasingly important that citizens — the users — remain central to dialogue and development processes. Smart City technology should make citizens’ life more efficient, and leaders bear the burden of articulating and demonstrating product and service value. This webinar will seek to highlight how effective outreach and engagement strategies are essential to sustainable Smart Cities business models.
