SCP E138 Where to next for Smart Cities and Communities? (Part 4)

I’m back with another bonus episode of the podcast that brings together multiple guests answers to the question “where to next with Smart Cities and Communities?” As the been focus of the podcast in October has been on The Future of Work, this time I’m sharing with you the answers from our guests this month.

Listen here:

Previous guests featured in this episode: 

  • E133 Sally Illingworth

  • E134 Thea O’Connor

  • E135 Anuraj Gambhir

  • E136 was Andrew Grill, and he doesn’t feature in this episode because I didn’t actually ask him this question specifically. His whole episode was really about what’s next so go back and check it out if you haven’t already!

  • E137 Colin Kinner

There are a couple of main themes in this episode. You’ll hear these guests talk a lot about the various stakeholders and humans at the centre of work, and the way technology is changing that, so how do we strike that balance between the technology and automation side of things, with the people, the jobs and most importantly the human brains and bodies and how they actually function best.

Creativity and critical thinking is a key theme, as is the importance of keeping the focus on communities, on investing in the people and investing in collaboration opportunities within workplaces, within cities, within communities. The future of work is a really broad topic and each of these guests are focusing on a different part of it, but it’s a fascinating conversation.

I really hope you enjoyed this whole month on #thefutureofwork. I have really enjoyed having these conversations and getting so many different perspectives. If there is another theme that you think we should cover, please let us know by emailing hello@mysmart.community

Or if you really enjoyed this one, please go ahead and leave us a rating and review at wherever you listen. This really helps us reach more ears and eyes, so thank you so much.

As always we hope you enjoy listening to this episode as much as we enjoyed making it.
