Why are we going?

In 2050, two-thirds of the world population will live in urban areas, consuming over 70% of energy and emitting just as much greenhouse gases. This year, the COVID-19 pandemic has changed how we live, work, and move about in our cities. The broad theme in the mission will be how to build healthy and sustainable cities. Innovative solutions are needed to solve some of the world’s toughest problems

European governments have become leaders in innovation and disruptive technologies developing national strategies to develop and implement smart solutions in Mobility, Energy Efficiency, Government, infrastructure, among others.

Western European Smart Cities spending is forecasted to reach about 24.7% of total global spending or approximately US$30 billion in 2020.

Smart City Live, the virtual edition of the Smart City Expo World Congress—the world’s leading event for cities—is taking place in November 2021 and will attract the latest Smart Cities technologies, solutions, and innovation
