The Power of Collaboration

Building the Societies and Smart Cities of Tomorrow

with the support of:

“No single player can address the challenges of an increasingly urban world on their own. Those who meet them with open minds, collective thinking and common goals will write the next chapter in inclusive, urban development and set the scene for future responsive and smart cities”

"The future of our world rests in the future of our cities. The future of our cities depends on how the Government, the Private Sector and Society collaborate"

The extreme pace of urbanization is affirming cities across the world as drivers of economic growth, innovation, global leadership, and, above all, as magnets for people looking for a better life.

 

With growth come major challenges. Cities and the private sector have begun to address these issues together. Yet too often, solutions offered by private enterprises focus on fixing a specific problem while cities are looking for roadmaps to implement digital transformation across their operations.

 

Real progress demands a fundamental change in the way city, society and business leaders work together.

SCiX is a two-day event that gathers some of the most innovative Governors, Mayors and City Officials from Regions and Cities across the World with Private Sector leaders, Academia and engaged Citizens to help BUILD the Sustainability and Smart City agenda. 

 

"The Power of Collaboration. Building the Society and Smart Cities of Tomorrow" is the theme for the Smart Cities Exchange Summit 2019 edition. The Urban Commons, Cooperative Models, and PPPs are the way forward.  We need to work together if we want to solve the most pressing problems of our era and help advance the UN SDG's.

 

The time to ACT is now!
