Project Description

Urbanization and Slowing Down

Peggy talks about urbanization and how technology is going to support population growth, pointing to examples such as monitoring water quality, air quality, and pollution level. She digs into a movement called Cittaslow, which is the idea that slowing down is better when it comes to quality of life in a city. She explains that we need to deploy purposeful solutions that keep the end goal in mind and that for smart cities, the end goal is creating livable places where people can thrive.
