Why citizens (not shoppers) hold the key to a better world
“Over the past several decades, many environmental and social change efforts have come to reflect the centrality of shopping in our culture, suggesting change can be made—or is even best made—through alterations in our individual consumption patterns.

“A smart city uses technology to improve services to its citizens and to deliver a better environment for people to live in by tackling challenges such as mobility, climate change, migration and security. But smart cities aren’t just about the technology.”
