Mark Thomas - New Mayor for Auckland

Smart Cities Asia KL

Just back from speaking at Smart Cities Asia 2018 in Kuala Lumpur. We certainly identified many of the solutions to the troubles of the world’s cities!

“Making Cities Smarter” was the theme, and there was lots of discussion about how to re-design cities to incorporate 4th age technologies, how to better track the path of this disruption, what circular economic systems can achieve and of course how to get greater citizen decision making including using blockchain.

But the context-setting was equally compelling as speakers talked about the congestion and carbon/energy challenges we have and the role the world’s emerging economic superpowers had tin helping solve these.
