Smarter Cities and Communities: technology and collaboration - a presentation to the United Nations Commission on Science and Technology for Development

344

Published on

I was honoured last year to be asked to address the 16th session of the United Nations’ Commission on Science and Technology for Development in Geneva on the topic of Smarter Cities and Communities. I was invited to speak following the Commission’s interest in my article “Open urbanism: why the information economy will lead to sustainable cities“, which was referenced in their report “Science, technology and innovation for sustainable cities and peri-urban communities“. A transcript of the presentation can be found at http://theurbantechnologist.com/2013/06/06/an-address-to-the-united-nations-science-technology-and-innovation-for-sustainable-cities-and-peri-urban-communities/
