In this co-creation workshop within Invotech’s Smarter Hong Kong series, we take a modern city’s approach to ask stakeholders how they should action sustainability, improve Hong Kong’s future, and make Hong Kong a Smarter City along the way.

With the growing focus on smart city technologies, cities must now be liveable and sustainable, as well as smart. In other words, for cities to prepare themselves for the future, sustainability has to be incorporated in urban development, coping with population changes and use of natural resources. A sustainable city is a resilient city because the future of Hong Kong is increasingly volatile, uncertain, chaotic, and ambigious. A Smart City utilises technology to improve the speed and quality of decision-making, with the ultimate aim of improving the quality of life for all residents.

But how can future smart cities like Hong Kong come up with a model for sustainability? What measures should we be taking in the short-term, medium-term and long-term? How do we connect and negotiate ‘smartness’ with Hong Kong’s sustainable development? Take the example where old industrial buildings should be easily and quickly converted into smart dormintories… but in today’s environment, that is just as empty.

Join us for this unique chance to interact and to co- innovate. This series of workshops is about framing, sharing, and co-creating; and above all, developing our Smart Citizens.
