Mind the Gap: Innovating for Inclusive Cities
Cities are facing unprecedented growth, accelerated by the prospect of jobs, education and a better life. Every month, the world’s urban population grows by 6 million. With so much growth, how can cities unlock better access to social, economic and academic opportunities for all? For underserved groups specifically, such as young people or the homeless, access and inclusion continues to be a challenge. This panel will explore how cities can deploy new technologies to promote inclusivity and empower communities to take advantage of all that a city has to offer, and how cities can interweave these technologies into every aspect of people’s daily lives. Additionally, panelists will share examples of new pilot programs and will offer perspectives from the civic, social and private sectors.
