Mass tourism can affect cities, their residents, and neighbourhoods negatively. After some challenging years for the most popular destinations, the lesson is learnt, and smarter and more sustainable tourism is becoming a new model to balance the full experience for visitors and the care of host communities. But sometimes, this could be a long way as infrastructures and the own system cannot follow the lead. How are cities working on their path towards a smarter destination?

The main problem of the decade issues how cities will cope with fast-changing factors.

In this session, we will discover Kyiv’s experience and outline how future-ready digital technologies can help cities stay resilient even in front of the toughest challenges, during a war.

How can cities ensure their positive impact on development and transformation? Funding and financing strategies are crucial for smart city frameworks to be implemented in reality. This process requires infrastructure modernization and implementation, and local governments need to mobilise financial sources and innovative financing strategies. This session will explore the tools available as multinational development banks, PPEPs, subsidies, sovereign funds or public loans, among others; the risks embedded, and how cities can access them.

After the global effects of the pandemic and current geopolitical tensions, cities are making an effort to recover their economies. Traditional economic models have become obsolete as new urban challenges arise, and more people-centred, innovative and sustainable models are responding the new ways of living and working. The challenge is how to ensure a stronger role from local governments in gaining financial and fiscal autonomy, and how can cities adopt the suited economic model for their growth and development in sustainability, wellbeing and resilience.

When we talk about education and cities, we normally think about how municipalities can facilitate a higher access and quality of the learning processes. But what if we looked at this topic the other way around? How could better education on how cities work and their complexity, bring future generations of students and citizens closer to understanding the true complexity of cities, their challenges, and opportunities? In an increasingly challenging future, adequately teaching the city can direct towards better prospects.
