Sustainable development and smart city are far more than a theoretical concept of balancing the economic, environmental, social, and technological dimensions of human development. In practice, it requires innovative solutions that ensure prosperity while protecting all people and the planet. As cities around the world are currently under fast transition towards a low carbon environment and resource efficient economy, there is a growing importance of exploring the opportunities and challenges in profiling the competitiveness and sustainability of cities. In this connection, the School of Energy and Environment is hosting a workshop on “Exploring Sustainable Smart Cities: Opportunities and Challenges in Interdisciplinary Approaches” on August 21st-22nd at City university of Hong Kong. We hope to take this opportunity to bring together the knowledge and theories, and ultimately aim to scale up practical solutions and shape new policies for the development of sustainable smart cities.
