Future of smart cities outlined (video)

Dialogue begins about what our cities will look like in 2040, and stresses need for infrastructure design to get smarter

Some of the UK’s leading thinkers in urban infrastructure came together earlier this week to start a conversation about the challenges of supporting a growing population in cities.

The event was part of the Future Cities Dialogue project, by Forum for the Future, Innovate UK, Sciencewise and Ipsos Mori. It coincided with the release of a report which reveals the current trends and challenges in urban development and offers three visions for what our cities could look like in 20 years. This is based on substantial dialogue with citizens on the types of cities they would want to live in.

You can read the Future Cities Dialogue report here and a video showing three cities of the future scenarios can be viewed below:
