Smart City Futures - 23rd july 2009 The Lowry Salford Manchester


A lack of transparency and a silo mentality had resulted in an environmental, political and economic meltdown.

Old models and accepted truths are becoming irrelevant and outmoded in a changing and connected world

New challenges call for new solutions

We believe that Universities should act as a catalyst of change and have decided to practice what we preach by trying something new

Smart City Futures will challenge traditional conference dynamics and experiment with new formats more in tune with the connected world

Top down monologue will be replaced with non hierarchical dialogue and collaborative ideas generation

Gone the assumptions about the communities we claim to serve, replaced by opportunities for those communities to offer their unmoderated and uncensored opinions via the live webcast

Smart City Futures is a gathering of Global leaders from business, public service and research. We will convene to share knowledge, experience, challenges and failures and to explore collaborative solutions Smart City Futures marks the end of a full year packed with partner events  [find out more here]
