As cities become home to an increasing percentage of the world's population, we must hold ourselves accountable for the preservation of our urban environment. Sensors and emerging technologies gather and analyze data to improve air quality and the whole urban ecosystem. However, a staggering seven million people are killed each year by air pollution, according to the UN Environment Program. Cities are already taking action to reduce the environmental impact produced by industry and vehicles emitting exhaust fumes and increasing urban resilience.
But are these actions enough? What are the most pressing challenges ahead? How can buildings and infrastructures maximize their energy efficiency and lower emissions? How can instruments such as GIS, 3D and Digital Twins improve urban planning? How can cities redefine their environment to fight climate change while meeting citizens' need for a better life?
