About this Smart Cities Masterclass
This Masterclass is designed upon the principles of the Smart Cities Council’s Smart Cities Readiness Guide (www.smartcitiescouncil.com) and is intended to help participants gain a full understanding of what makes up a smart city; how its different components work together synergistically; the benefits it delivers to governments and citizens; and the conceptual framework that creates a holistic vision that spans all core stakeholder functions and responsibilities.
The Masterclass is designed for local government professionals, but the content is highly relevant when engaging business and citizens. The concept of co-creating a smart cities strategy at a later date with key stakeholders should be a goal for participants.
