|Location:||Southern Sun, Elangeni|
|Description:||ESG Green Pages in partnership with the Department of the Environmental Affairs and ESG Green Pages, will be hosting a three-day event on the 6/7/8th June 2012.|
There is a top line-up of world-class speakers and the MC for the event is media personality and climatologist Simon Gear.
The event will cover a host of local challenges, most notably: inefficient transport services, outdated water and waste networks, adapting IT integration, rising pollution levels, an increased demand for energy, a strain on health and security, education and poor urban management. With a prediction of 80% of South Africa’s population living in cities in the near future, the motivation for creating smart and sustainable cities and towns has never been more important.
Smart city planning is now a worldwide trend and is becoming the norm in countries as different as the USA, China and those in Europe.
Smart Cities are also growth and prosperity drivers, creating huge commercial opportunities. Attendees at the Smart Cities Summit already include National, Local and Local Government as well as a high representation of industry leaders.
