A New Report Shapes the Future of Cities

2019-07-11 13:03:30




The Smart Cities Stakeholder Platform /partner of the SEE Smart Cities/ releases the news about the recently finalized the Future of Cities report.

It highlights drivers shaping the urban future, identifying both the key challenges cities will have to address and the strengths they can capitalize on to proactively build their desired futures. The main aim of this report is to raise open questions and steer discussions on what the future of cities can, and should be, both within the science and policymaker communities. While addressing mainly European cities, examples from other world regions are also given since many challenges and solutions have a global relevance. The report is particularly novel in two ways. First, it was developed in an inclusive manner – close collaboration with the EC’s Community of Practice on Cities (CoP-CITIES) provided insights from the broader research community and city networks, including individual municipalities, as well as Commission services and international organizations. Secondly, the report is supported by an online ‘living’ platform which will host future updates, including additional analyses, discussions, case studies, comments and interactive maps that go beyond the scope of the current version of the report.

Steered by the JRC, the platform will offer a permanent virtual space to the research, practice and policymaking community for sharing and accumulating knowledge on the future of cities.

The report is produced in the framework of the EC Knowledge Centre for Territorial Policies:
