What is The Future of Cities Collaborative?

The Future of Cities brings innovators together with a common goal of reimagining the systems and processes that guide the operation of our cities. We will explore the impact of technology on transportation, health, the environment, and social interaction.

Working collaboratively with a variety of stakeholders, we will explore solutions to the most pressing challenges while making sure consideration is given to the privacy and security of citizens.
