Smart Cities: It’s time to stop showing and start building
After years of talking and promoting smart cities, why aren’t we there yet? Maybe because the reality of our cities is far more complex than expected.
The smart city is not a product anymore, it has turned into philosophy and this is the moment to rethink some approaches.
Citizens, businesses, and administrations have now the chance to start working together for a much better city, efficient, sustainable, open and tolerant, creative and with opportunities for all.
