The greatest challenge smart cities need to meet is connection... to their demographic and sociological reality, i.e. the real world in which people live, travel, enjoy themselves, take care of themselves, train, do a job or set up a business.
How to give each of them, from childhood to old age, the tools to develop into a citizen of the digital age, free and equal? Smart cities also develop by encouraging people to participate, by supporting their involvement in projects and decisions, and by fostering social innovation. A smart city’s inclusion and education policies develop the access of each and every person to its digital technologies and services. See our information and projects relating to the Social theme
