Genoa, Italy, 17-20 June 2014
At the kind invitation from the Municipality of Genoa, the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) and the European Commission organized a series of events concentrated on prominent theme of "Smart Sustainable Cities".
Cities are at the same time drivers of social and economic development, as well as responsible for resources consumption and pollution. Furthermore, the rising global urban population is intensifying environmental pressure and social and economic challenges.
ICT can play a significant role in fostering livability in cities, enabling us to live more sustainably. Urban infrastructure and services that rely on ICT-integrated solutions can enhance sustainable lifestyles, foster a more intelligent and profitable use of resources and promote social justice.
ICT can make the change happen. This is why it matters how we use it.
These events brought together leading specialists in the field, from top policy-makers to engineers, designers, planners, government officials, regulators, academia, standards experts and others to raise awareness on the role of ICTs to build the cities we want.
