The smart city concept has gained significant importance in today’s rapidly evolving world. These cities leverage technology and innovation to enhance the quality of life for their residents. However, it is crucial to ensure that the benefits of smart cities are accessible to everyone and that no one is left behind.
This session aims to discuss the obstacles that communities face in addition to the opportunities that knowledge transfer through digital tools. The workshop will delve into the ways in which ground-breaking initiatives centred around Nexus disciplines can influence and enhance the involvement of communities in smart city development, fostering active participation and inclusive decision-making processes.
