Story
Tagline
We envision a world where digital technology and intelligent design have been harnessed to create smart, sustainable cities.
Introduction
Millions of people move to cities every day.  By 2050, cities will be home to 70% of the world’s population.  Yet, today’s city infrastructure and planning processes don’t adequately address this future.
 
It’s time to go beyond envisioning a smarter, healthier and more livable city.  We can achieve it if we work together.
 
The Smart Cities Council is an industry coalition that serves as a market accelerator and advisor to cities around the globe to promote livability, workability and sustainability.
