Do smart cities need smart citizens?
Are you ready to become a smart citizen? Join us on 27-28 September at the Asia Pacific Smart Cities Forum in Kuala Lumpur. At the place where future becomes present.
Imagine a city with a large-scale infrastructure with unlimited data sources on energy consumption, waste, mobility, health-care and education, made possible by technologies such as sensor webs, open databases and ubiquitous information access. This connects people with their environment and creates a more efficient and optimal relationship between available resources, technology and community services. This is a city that creates new possibilities.
question is: do these smart cities need smart citizens? Allowing
citizens to become active in the process of city design is a key to
success of a smart city. Citizens who live and work in these cities
must be integral to the implementation process as well. A developing
city will turn into a successfully developed city when its citizens
upgrade themselves. A smart city is not about technology and has
never been. It is about the personal experience of its residents. It
is a fact that smart citizens are an essential part of smart cities,
without which the entire mechanism would not be able to properly
function and develop further.
is time to ask yourself a question: if your city becomes a smart city
with perfect infrastructure and advanced technology, will it turn you
into a smart citizen? It is not just about your qualifications or
level of education, but also interaction, integration and openness to
the outside world.
the Asia Pacific Smart City Forum, Maimunah Jaffar, the distinguished
speaker from the Iskandar Regional Development Authority who serves
as Head of Planning & Compliance, will talk about the importance
of citizen engagement in the success of smart cities project.
Furthermore, Ybhg. Dato' Mohd Ali Hanafiah Mohd Yunus, Chief Digital
Ecosystem Officer from the Malaysia Communications & Multimedia
Commission, will discuss the “Smart City Framework: turning talk
into action.” Last, but not least, Chief Executive Oficer of
REDtone IOT Sdn Bhd, Dr. Mazlan Abbas will have a keynote
presentation on “Smart Citizen Engagement – Power to sense.
