Innovative Forms of Science Communication

The Science Jinn Gets to Know ... Smart & Sustainable Cities

 

By 2050, the vast majority of both European and Arab states’ populations will live in urban areas. How can scholars, practitioners and urban stakeholders build better, more efficient and sustainable cities in the future? The concept of ‘smart cities’ aims to tackle urgent environmental, economic and social challenges posed by urban living through the innovative use of information and communications technology (ICT) to link and optimize energy, resource and economic flows in urban areas.

The AGYA Science Jinn explains scientific findings in a comprehensible way. Moreover, he is passionate about fun facts and interesting figures. In this edition, the AGYA Science Jinn explains 'Smart & Sustainable Cities'.
