A global movement with the main purpose to spread and promote awareness and information about ideas, technology, urbanism, creativeness, and thinking (philosophical, anthropological and sociological) through cities and communities.

A platform that questions, points and tries to solve problems and challenges that, each and every day, are becoming more and more complex and visible. But solutions for these problems sometimes are not instant and can’t be disconnected from reality. Most of the challenges need to be solved in a solid, intelligent and sustainable way.

ZOOM GLOBAL SMART CITIES ASSOCIATION wants to bring light to decision-makers and citizens, opening new paths, sustainable and adjustable, to what are each city and communities natural limitations, protecting the social and economic fabrics so that results may be visible and clear to everyone, through solid and strategic foundations for future generations.

2020 the year (and decade) to Start Smart

We created a few weeks ago the platform StartSmart.city.

StartSmart.city is a special incubation/acceleration program specifically designed to support and invest in cities and startups that develop projects directly or indirectly related to smart cities to strengthen the social and economic fabric of the territory.

StartSmart.city was created with the goal of supporting and contributing to the progress of cities by attracting and retaining talent and entrepreneurs by providing different and alternative channels for access to investment and financing.

I hope you can reach us in 2020!
Let’s go together to a different dimension of smartness.🚀
Bring it on 2020! 🏄

The first launching of the SMART TRAVEL event, in 2014, has contributed to bringing awareness about Tourism and Smart Destinations and Smart Cities to institutional policymakers, associations, companies, and citizens in the Northeast region of Portugal (and also in the country).

SMART TRAVEL set the international Schedule and established new borders for the future joining the dots between disconnected topics like Tourism and Smart Destinations and the remote cities, smaller and experiencing hard times retaining and attracting population, talent and investment.

The SMART TRAVEL event projected, globally, the city of Bragança as an international reference and an example of resiliency and determination in changing the increasing impoverishment of remote regions far away from the main decision centers but also with great potential (environmental, scientific, economic, natural, cultural, etc)

SMART TRAVEL gathered in the past 4 years, dozens of enthusiasts for Smart Cities and Smart Tourism coming from diverse places inside and outside Portugal. Brough some of the most relevant scholars, researchers, experts, thinkers, creators and developers of solutions, projects and case studies of successful balance between different interests within cities.
