The concept of a city is evolving, and changing the ways people work, play, and lead their lives. With the growing global population, the increasing movement towards urbanization, and the need for sustainable energy, mobility, and community management, smarter cities are essential to the evolution of the clean energy economy. Through innovative technologies, public-private partnerships, and the growing needs of the citizens themselves, an organically-developed city-wide solution is vital as society seeks to mitigate and adapt to climate change.

 

Resilience enables humans, animals, plants, and other living things to adapt, survive, and thrive.  Beyond resilience, the ability to be “antifragile” is to learn and improve from prior mistakes and threats…just as the smallest of living things, bacteria, can develop resistance and become stronger if not wiped out completely.[1]

 

This half day conference will focus on Resiliency, Smart Cities,Ecodistricts and Sustainable Neighborhoods.

Panel Discussion Resiliencity: Smart City San Francisco

  1. What has San Francisco accomplished in 2013 towards implementing a smart city?
  2. What does San Francisco expect to accomplish in 2014? Over the next 5 years?
  3. In what ways is the private sector (e.g. builders, architects, utilities, tech companies, telecom companies, financiers, system integrators, law firms, and consultants) engaged in San Francisco’s smart city development?
  4. In what ways are citizens engaged in San Francisco’s smart city development?
  5. What are some of the newest technological products and services enabling the smart city?
