Smart Cities. An Opportunity for Europe
The 21st century is going to be the century of cities. The world is undergoing the largest wave of urbanization: more than half of the population is now living in the cities. The digital revolution is leading us to a hyper-connected world and a sharing society. Hence, the Smart City concept, at the confluence of these two mega-trends is especially relevant. Europe, well-positioned in the development of its cities, has now the opportunity to leverage the city as a platform for digital transformation of the economy and the society. Latin America can take advantage of the digital transformation to meet the economic and social challenges ahead.
