SMART CITIES, HAPPIER CITIZENS


Smart cities are a response to the challenge of urban growth and how to keep a city sustainable. Currently 50% of the world’s population lives in cities and this is forecast to grow to 75% by 2050. The idea behind smart cities is to harness digital technology and data, generally relating to energy, water and transport, to help the city function more effectively to the benefit of the people that live there. Well managed, urbanization could lead to a new era of wellbeing, efficient use of resources and economic growth. The right strategies could deliver increased employment, improved health, better education and environmental protections for its citizens. In the UK Peterborough and


Cardiff have dipped their toes in the water with digital projects to improve communications and improve transport respectively, while in Barcelona technology has been used to control water used in parks and other public spaces, leading to a 25% consumption saving.


Building a smart city is an


incredibly complex task, which is where standards come into the picture. Standards can provide good practice guidance and expert knowledge that ensures quality and performance.
