About this Event

Our Digital Future - C’est ICI !

#Technological advancements and tools linked to #smartcities including big data, the #Internetofthings (IoT), connected sensors, information & communication technologies (ICT) and cognitive computing all have the potential to create significant benefits in the way cities function.

We have the opportunity to better plan, interact, manage resources and tackle complex #challenges, from governance and the #environment to quality of life and education. By using modern technology we can create innovations that affect individuals, communities and businesses alike.

Connect with driven young people from #Europe and #Canada and develop ideas for our future on the topic of "Smart & Fast Expanding Cities"! Discuss how technological advancements are changing our understanding of cities and living together! How can we use digitality to build an inclusive society?
