Smart City Expo World Congress to be held online

As a continuation of our partnership with Fira de Barcelona from last year, CityNet is pleased to invite you to participate in the Smart City Expo World Congress, which this year will be held online in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Since the global pandemic is still impacting our daily lives, the Smart City Expo team and Fira de Barcelona have been finding a new way to reconnect all the industry actors and rebuild ecosystems to accelerate a much-needed recovery. This year, they are transforming themselves into an online event: Smart City Live, a one-shot, innovative edition happening digitally on November 17 – 18, 2020, that will maintain the event quality and international scope that they are known for while putting participants’ safety first.

 

The new Smart City Live will consist of a full-day, broadcast television show on day one, with interviews, debates, and success stories focusing on how COVID-19 has impacted cities and is redefining citizens’ normality, plus a program on day two featuring workshops, sessions, and side events, which will gather key players and global institutions to tackle the challenges beyond the short-term impact of the pandemic.

Smart City Live aims to be the place to collectivize urban power, to increase the strength of cities, to identify business opportunities, to establish partnerships and contribute to enacting common policies. A place to share research, best practices and potential common solutions, achieved through effective collaboration.

To pre-register for the event, please go to www.smartcityexpo.com. All questions can also be directed to the organizers, Fira de Barcelona.

Around the world, cities are facing #environmentalhazards like extreme #heat, #landslides, #pollution, and #flooding. To enhance #resilience to #climatechange impacts, cities must monitor and address these hazards. Earth observations can help cities understand and enhance urban resilience and make better decisions for planning, urban #greening, monitoring, and more.

This 3-part, introductory webinar series will provide an overview of the Earth Observations Toolkit for Sustainable Cities and Human Settlements, an online knowledge resource that shares ready-to-use Earth observation data sets and tools. These resources can be applied in policy areas that are important to resilient and sustainable cities. Such areas include sustainable urban planning, adequate #housing, access to #publictransport, and access to public spaces.
