This forum brings together experts from various disciplines to speak about intelligent cities. Intelligent cities are key enablers to drive smart, sustainable growth and boost job creation while tackling economic, environmental and social challenges. Advanced technologies, such as new sensing and communication technologies, Internet of Things, Artificial Intelligence and blockchain, offer substantial opportunities to cities to test and scale up climate-neutral traffic systems, clean mobility, digital twins, local renewable energy solutions, smart waste management, smart health management, new forms of entrepreneurship and a well-functioning local circular economy.

We have been polluting our planet with greenhouse gases for decades, and we need to a) stop continuing to put more gases into the atmosphere and b) undo the damage we have caused. It is like a bathtub filling with dirty water; we need to turn the taps off but we also need to drain it. Greenhouse gas removal hasn’t even started in earnest – we don’t even have a strategy for which options should be used. 

A part of the Cambridge Zero Climate Change Festival 2020.
