- Smart Cities For All (an initiative of World Enabled and G3ict)
Over the next two years, cities will invest nearly 1.5 trillion dollars in smart city technologies, specifically in enhancing digital services in transportation, safety and security, emergency preparedness, and civic participation. While Smart Cities are booming worldwide, they also risk leaving large numbers of citizens behind. This dynamic training session addresses how cities can leverage Information and communications technology (ICT) to innovate and promote inclusion. By highlighting practical examples from the Smart Cities for All (SC4A) Global Initiative the session explores the steps smart city leaders, civil society organizations, and industry are taking to address the digital divide for persons with disabilities and older persons. This hands-on training session will help participants deploy the innovative Smart Cities For All Toolkit and specifically the SC4A Maturity Model for Digital Inclusion. The session also features practical examples of best-practices and leading Smart City Solutions that promote Digital Inclusion.
