The EUROCITIES knowledge society forum (KSF) and the Green Digital Charter (GDC) initiative, will gather city representatives, policy makers and experts from across Europe to debate over expectations, opportunities and the impact of digital technologies in co-creating future cities and societies, with citizens.
European cities have the potential to lead by example urban development worldwide, this event aims at exploring which are the challenges ahead and how future cities will look like. The debate will raise questions related to the changing landscape thanks to new technologies and the increasing engagement of citizens in the public space. This will include, for examples: Big data: what are the opportunities and the challenges for cities? What does ‘open governance’ mean to cities and how do they put it into practice? How new technologies are changing the local economies and jobs?
