TAKEAWAYS OF SCEWC22
Now's the time to take action
We have been fostering innovation and drawing inspiration for a decade. Now it's time to actively implement solutions to mitigate real-world problems such as climate change, cyberattacks and growing inequality.
Public-private cooperation, the key to success
Financing tools and models are one of the biggest hurdles cities face. Where we’re seeing quite a bit of opportunity is in the search for new public-private partnerships.
Not all the work needed in cities is tech-based
Along with different kinds of leadership, a real human-centric, inclusive and sustainable approach to smart cities is needed to make cities succeed at the frontline of climate action, green economy and resilience.
