“There has been a trend of rising attention for the sustainable industry; the future of smart cities is looking brighter everyday and the feasibility of implementing a smart city is becoming widely increasing. With our affiliations, we are successfully creating an inclusive, tech-oriented system through the Smart City Master Planning and TechSandbox.”
Many governments and cities around the world encounter many mutual challenges. Some of these key issues include inefficiency of asset distribution, administration, air and light pollution, waste management, climate change, and wildlife contamination.
We are a non-profit organisation providing strategies and assisting local governments and municipalities to solve current urban challenges they face by building and developing human-centric smart cities around the world. By building the structure of sustainable growth models for various cities we look to create smart cities with the below eight pillars in mind.

“People Centricity – Citizens take center stage and seek sustainable growth of the city through open data, Circular Economy, innovative ecosystem, and continuous technological development.”
As technology is evolving at a rapid rate we are creating new more efficient forms of renewable energy. The World Smart Cities Forum is looking at the best practices to save energy by not only finding and working with companies that are building new processes and solutions, but also working with our partners to help support their development.
Property and Infrastructure is the foundation for any Smart City. With a good base a city can ready itself for future development and new technological advancements. With the increase of interest in Smart Homes and Smart buildings we are entering a new era for people and cities.
World Smart Cities Forum has created a system where we are able to connect cities together and produce city sized Sandboxes. By learning from existing Smart Cities we can come up with international solutions that can work with similar cities around the world. This will bring new levels of collaboration and will improve the rate of international development.
Innovation & Technology
Innovation and Technology is the foundation of smart cities. Without innovation and technology, solutions to urban problems cannot be solved and so the World Smart Cities Forum strives to select innovative technologies that can aid in Smart City master planning.
Whether it’s commuting to work, popping to the shops or seeing friends, connected transport systems offering flexibility and efficiency are key to the happiness of citizens. At the World Smart Cities Forum we are looking for the most efficient and sustainable alternatives such as electric bikes and buses to reduce carbon emissions and noise pollution, as well as improve citizens’ lives.
Water & Waste
Many developing countries struggle with access to clean water which should not be the case in the 21st Century. The World Smart Cities Forum strives to find the best solutions and practices to make clean, running water a commonplace globally for the betterment of people’s lives.
World Smart Cities Forum’s goal lines up with the UN to help local governments to utilise projects and build systems to encourage circular economies. The goal is to use resources more efficiently by using them over and over as well as encourage a society to think about reuse and recycling.
Living & Security
Home automation systems are set to be an integral part of day to day life, controlling lights, heating, energy usage, appliance control, access control and security. There are currently few worldwide accepted standards, so here at World Smart City Forum our aim is to make a more cohesive set of standards that will be more widely installed into homes.
