People-centered smart cities

The conference “People-centered smart cities” will take place on  Wednesday 2nd of February 2022 at the Regional Council of the Greater East Region in Strasbourg, France.

Facing digital challenges, French stakeholders are committed to get involved in an international and partnership program which aims to adress local and global challenges on digital, as to fancy the opportunities it represents for sustainable and inclusive cities.

Since the launching of the UN-Habitat flagship program, the French Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs and the Greater East Region, with the coordination of the Fnau (French network of urban planning agencies) and their partners, are preparing the French contribution to the program of UN-Habitat on “People-centered smart cities”, including this conference. This contribution takes also part of the European Union commitments to implement the digital transformation of Europe by 2030.

The conference of Strasbourg will be the opportunity to gather French, European and international highlevel stakeholders to debate during roundtables on the challenges of new practices, inclusion, sobriety and governance.
