Why attend

A smart city holds the promise of an urban utopia. Imagine a fully connected urban center that uses technology to improve energy efficiency, sustainability, communication, as well as social and economic equality for its citizens. But this blueprint doesn’t address an urgent question: as we create smarter cities, do we have the smart vision to match?

At Elevate, we’ll explore the building blocks of a smart city and look specifically at Toronto which has become a testing ground for trailblazing projects such as with Sidewalk Toronto. Beyond this, we’ll discuss some of the implications of a fully-connected urban space that collects information on citizens at all times.  How do we ensure individual privacy, and how can we avoid creating a digital divide that leaves neighbouring communities behind?

Join us as we bring a critical lens to these issues, so that we can ensure we’re building smart cities that work for everyone.
