Event description

Description

Following successful events held by UK BCSD in Glasgow, Birmingham and Manchester during 2016, this day will explore the potential impact of Smart technology for the development of low carbon Cardiff and the city region.

We live in a resource and financially constrained world. City administrations face the challenges of growing populations, diminishing resources, increased traffic and climate change. The smart delivery of services is a prerequisite for driving resource efficiency and delivering quality services. But smart is not just about the application of technology, it’s about integrated policy development and maximising the use of resources and facilities. Technology can help us build safer, zero carbon cities based on circular systems in which green space and nature are integrated into urban planning.

Across the globe, public-private partnerships are meeting these challenges and providing creative, profitable solutions that enhance public well-being (see more here). How can this be utilised in Cardiff?
