When we think of smart cities, we usually think of smart infrastructure, smart buildings, smart transportation and so on. However, the most important pillar are the people inhabiting the city. The technologies of the future can contribute to increase people’s health, happiness, wellness, safety, level of education and culture, access to sport infrastructure etc - but how?
This challenge has already been worked on in the E³UDRES² Hackathon 2021 and is open for further development.
Challenge questions from the E³UDRES² Hackathon 2021:
How might we reduce pollution and improve air quality for better overall health?
How might we reconfigure public space so that we create sport (e.g. jogging) opportunities for all?
How might we improve the safety of urban traffic so that citizens travel with peace of mind?
How might we reduce food waste for sustainable urban living?
How might we provide rich access to art and culture for the mind and soul?
How might we create a socially Inclusive environment for all groups, not only for the technologically advanced?
