The core purpose for any progressive city is to have a thriving population with an increasing quality of life for all. Which means that ultimately, the vision for a smart future is to have people at the heart of the city.

Smart cities will need to address societal issues in areas like health and education, promote inclusion, and embrace digital innovation so they become places people want to live and work.

Our white paper, 'Rethinking smart futures' puts forward an agenda for action to address these issues, examining how cities can operate to be successful in the long run and benefit generations now and in the future. By focusing on people, revamping transport into the modern day, and utilising the power of data and technology, the vision of a smart future can be turned into reality.

In collaboration with London Transport Museum, Thales UK, and PwC, our white paper brings together discussions from five roundtable events with leading thinkers and decision makers as they debate challenges and opportunities facing cities, transport and infrastructure.

'Rethinking smart futures' will aim to help governments, city and regional authorities, and private sector providers understand what the starting point of creating the smart future is. The white paper explores the deliverables required and how to navigate through the challenges and roadblocks of creating smart futures.
