Driven by progressive initiatives that benefit both the economy and the environment, a number of cities across the San Diego region are rapidly emerging as some of the “smartest cities” in North America. From adopting ambitious climate action plans to deploying IoT technologies to making shifts toward advanced energy and transportation and leveraging connectivity and data in new ways, our region is on the leading edge of making communities more livable and connected.
So, what’s our next step? Working together – across city boundaries – to ensure our region enhances connectively, ensures equality and inclusivity, advances climate action plans, and makes data-driven decisions to accelerate new economic development while creating open, secure, accountable, and transparent processes within the region.
Join us for a discussion with regional smart cities leaders from local governments that have been early adopters of smart city technologies and are committed to sharing their strategies and lessons learned to create a smart, sustainable, and connected region.
