DE-US.net Webinar July 1st 2019: Smart Cities - Beyond Technology
Webinar on July 1 at 14:00 GMT (16:00 Berlin | 10:00 am Washington, D.C.)
Join our next webinar which seeks to expand the Smart Cities conversation from its current focus on smart technologies and IoT to cities as Smart socio-ecological systems that continuously increase their performance, interconnected behaviors, biocapacity, resilience, regeneration and ability to thrive.
The webinar grounds the discussion in an appreciation of complex systems, current and accelerating changes that place communities at-risk, and challenges that Smart Cities must address.
It reviews Sustainable Communities Institute (SCI) proposals for Living-in-SystemsTM, building local networks; planning communities as integrated energy-water-food systems, facilitating local food systems as community change catalysts, introducing the Urban FARMacy as neighborhood change trigger, and designing Sustainable Living and Growing CentersTM as production-education-research-demonstration centers for learning-by-doing how to Live within SystemsTM.
Join this webinar to learn how about the SCI concepts and proposals what our DE-US.net experts contribute to more sustainable, resilient and smart cities.
