What would it take to create a Smart City??
 
Cities occupy just 2% of the world's surface...but house 50% of the population, consume 70% of the world’s energy & are responsible for 80% of the world’s carbon emission!

It's clearly time for CHANGE! Let's begin to develop smartER cities that use information and communication technology (ICT) in an integrative approach to improve the intelligence and efficiency in the use of resources, city operations, the quality of life for its citizens, growing the local economy, and supporting innovation and a low-carbon economy.

Story
Tagline
Global youth-led sustainability movement empowering youth to develop and implement solutions for sustainable development around the World.
Introduction
IDEAS = Intellectual Decisions on Environmental Awareness Solutions  

We are a global youth-led sustainability movement comprised of a network of youth leaders, campus/community organizations and green professionals around the World, working together to catalyze sustainable development and foster the growth of change-agents by developing and implementing solutions for sustainability, on campus and in their communities.

Since our inception in June 2008, IDEAS has organically grown to over 4,000 members, 25 chapters in the U.S. and over 14 International programs currently being worked on.  

We have partnered with over 50 NGO's around the World; recently became an accredited NGO of the United Nations; and continue to be a driving force to educate, engage and empower youth to create solutions for sustainable development across the U.S., and in parts of the World.
