  • 1. Review of Day 1 Connecting Cities for Sustainable Living: An Urban Revolution Martin Stewart‐Weeks, IBSG (A/Pac)
  • 2. Remember what Nic said? • We confront a perfect storm… urbanisation, ageing, infrastructure  renewal, climate change, an  unprecedented financial and economic  crisis • We then heard lots of stories based on  deep insight, smart thinking and  innovation  • The question now is how does it all  start to come together in a plan for  change  ‐ a common vision that will  motivate and accelerate execution
  • 3. Cities are 75% of the problem… • …so they have to be 75% of the solution If you get it right in the  city, you get it right
  • 4. Scale and speed • Every day 180k… • A new city of 1 million every week for the  next 30 years… How do cities keep up  – quality, access and cost
  • 5. Parking tickets in NYC • What happens when an immovable object  (traditional government silos and  processes) meets an irresistible force  (social networking + citizen engagement)? Trying to change the way  government works…
  • 6. Squaring the sustainability triangle Economic Social Environmental
  • 7. Changing behaviour • EcoMap, PTA, Cisco Bangalore, Senseable City…? • Information is the key (lots of it,  everywhere, telling us things…) Closing the gap between  knowledge and action
  • 8. An idea Information , communication and  collaboration, enabled and accelerated  by the network as a critical  infrastructure, changes the way we  think about, design, build, manage and  renew sustainable cities
  • 9. Integrate Converge Connect
  • 10. Platform for Urban Services • Providing common services that are  needed by different parts of the city… • … on a platform that is designed and  provisioned on a whole‐of‐city basis. 
  • 11. People and  community (live,  play, work and learn) Economic  Buildings Putting the pieces  resilience  ? together: a vision  for the connected  sustainable city  Transport and  Culture and  mobility creativity
  • 12. Our motto? “Only connect! …live in  fragments no longer” EM Forster: Howards End (1910)
