Smart City 2020- Workshop

I am looking for partners to run a workshop related to "Smart City Planning", initially in the city of Lima-Peru and Mexico City. However if someone is interested in launching the workshop somewhere else I am ready for the challenge.



Thanks for your response. Just to let you know a little bit more about the proposed approach for the workshop:
A smart city plan should start with people, therefore we recognize technology as an interface that facilitates the design, management, operation and update of the networked infrastructure.

Three main thematic clusters are considered:
• Natural Resources & Energy (The Hardware)
• Built Environment (The Software)
• Society & Skills (The User)

Within each thematic cluster we will focus on:
• Data & Knowledge Management (The Hardware)
• Project Management (The Software)
• Governance (The User Platform)

First step, we go through disaggregated thematic clusters (The Hardware, The Software, The User) then we will proceed to integration of solutions, from; Conceptual perspective, data input logic, iterations, loops, and prioritized outputs.

As part of thematic presentations, we will include “soft-infrastructure” solutions, that are the flagship of “Bottom-Up” strategies and takes advantage of local know-how.

Just to remind that, although there are some solutions that could be broadly apply, there are no “one size fits all” solutions.
