Concept

As states in India rush to implement the dream of ‘smart’ cities, what can we learn and understand from international cities that have been part of this movement?

  • How does Technology workt with the physical nature of cities to make them more liveable?
  • Do Smart Technological solutions integrate with traditional practices of urban design and planning?
  • How can high-tech and low-tech solutions be combined without the danger that it will leave us de-humanized?
  • What will happen to our streets, our public domain and our social interactions?
  • Can appropriate technology based on traditional wisdom work more effectively to make our cities liveable?

For answers to all these and many more questions MyLiveableCity will bring together some of the finest thinkers and practitioners from across the world and India for a day-long seminar and networking event on 17th April 2015 at the India International Centre in New Delhi. This is an opportunity to meet visionaries, mayors, bureaucrats, experts on Intelligent Communities, sustainability, innovation and new towns.
