Future Cities: Security, 9th July, in London
Future cities used to be sustainable and resilient to change. But triggers for change are increasing: energy and food prices, severe weather events, and aging infrastructure. Cities face a myriad of potential future shocks and stresses. To meet these challenges they must work to identify risks and mitigate against them with location as a key component.
- How should we best monitor, measure and manage our cities?
- The growth of the Internet of Things: will it improve the way we all navigate our cities?
- How do we successfully translate urban data to measure our key cities' economies?
- How do we capture citizens' wishes to shape the urban environments of the future?

questions, and more. Learn from experts from the commercial, public and academic worlds,
