SCP E237 Where to Next for Smart Cities and Communities Part 17

Hello #smartcommunityfriends. I’m back with another bonus episode of the Smart Community Podcast sharing various guests answers to the question, ‘Where to next with Smart Cities and Communities?” And this time I’m sharing with you the answers from these guests: 

Listen here:

Some themes that come through in the guest answers are around digital tools and technologies, data and how data can improve decision making. It is becoming more and more important to start showing our communities real time data to allow them to make better informed decisions. Digital tools and new technologies play a large role in this, firstly to disseminate collected data to the community and secondly, allowing for better public engagement, both contributing to better decision making. Without knowledge and good quality data, people do not have reason to take action, make better decisions or change their behaviour for the better. 

As Stefaan Verhulst says, “Smart Communities will realise that it’s not about the city infrastructure, but it’s really about the kinds of decisions that can be improved. So I think Smart Communities will have to become Smart decision environments.” 

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