Exploration of Technology and Initiatives in our Future City
Smart City was a subjective term where each municipality had their own definition and project, which was included under the Smart City umbrella. As time passed, the relevancy of the term Smart City came into question as municipalities pivoted their priorities to accommodate present challenges and budget constraints.
At our Future Cities Roadshow leaders will converge together to share their challenges, and build an ecosystem of knowledge, ideas, and solutions with a goal of increasing the connectivity between municipalities of all sizes. Explore how Future Cities has evolved from being the responsibility of a siloed team, to an overarching strategy embedded within all organizational process. Join Public Sector Network’s Future Cities Roadshow as municipalities share their success stories, strategies, and best practices with their local public sector peers
