In cities around the world, digital platforms are bringing together citizens and service providers in innovative ways. In a recent post on Medium Stefaan Verhulst, Co-Founder and Chief of R&D and Julia Root, Adjunct Fellow at the GovLab write about the ways in which we observe cities re-imagining themselves. The authors point to four distinct ways that cities are redefining how they plan, build and invest in their futures.
Each way deploys a different set of technologies and tools that when combined with urban thinking and design, is changing not just our urban environments, but the pace of change as well:
- Connected cities
- Smarter Cities
- Participatory Cities
