Illustrating the added value of smart cities
These cases – and many others – will be presented and discussed during Tomorrow Ghent, Smart City of People, which takes place from 22 to 24 September. On Friday (11:00 – 16:00), the citizens of Ghent are welcome to explore the city of the future during the first – free – ‘Smart City of People expo’. From Friday to Sunday evening, all the stakeholders will open a dialogue during the JCI National Convention – two days of workshops, trainings, round table discussions, presentations and more.
“Today’s cities are facing a series of social, economic and ecological challenges. We believe that innovation and technology can help us address the challenges and accelerate the development of solutions. The Smart City initiative helps us illustrate the added value of smart cities. Last year’s brainstorming session and Tomorrow Ghent are great ways to foster dialogue and inspire people. Ghent is a great starting point for this experience. Its positioning as Smart City of People is unique in the world. We believe that smart cities cannot exist without smart citizens, as they are the ones that instill change,” says Peter Anckaert, chairman of the JCI Gent Artevelde advisory board.
