Global Smart Cities Council Platform

Smart Cities are the critical element of our times. Any city or region has to build a strategy that can increase its optimisation of the fundamentals, put together a better healthcare, sustainable approach that using digital transformation tools towards competitiveness and quality of life, efficiently use resources, and support economic sustainability by using technology and creativity to raise the IQ of the built environment.

Global Smart Cities Council Platform envisions a world where digital technology and intelligent design have been harnessed to create smart, sustainable cities with high-quality living and high-quality jobs. The platform council is a powerful council that taps into the transformative power of smart technologies, and a global approach towards cities that need a trusted, neutral advisor.

The project consists of a global network of leading companies advised by top universities, laboratories and standards bodies.

The Smart Cities Council Platform promote cities that embody our three core values:

Livability: Cities that provide clean, healthy living conditions without pollution and congestion. With a digital infrastructure that makes city services instantly and conveniently available anytime, anywhere.
Workability: Cities that provide the enabling infrastructure — energy, connectivity, computing, essential services — to compete globally for high-quality jobs.
Sustainability: Cities that provide services without stealing from future generations.

Global Smart Cities Council Platform helps cities become smarter by providing, at no cost to cities:

Smart Cities Activator is the world's first online collaborative platform for discovery a city's needs, assets and stakeholders and then planning projects. Activator’s public-sector (demand-side) functionality lies in four areas:
1. Activator Discover: Use structured intake to survey stakeholders and gather project documentation. Use visual tools to map the stakeholder ecosystem including legal, technical, and financial relationships.
2. Activator Plan: Use powerful collaborative planning tools for multiple projects with multiple stakeholders across multiple time zones while staying in perfect synch. Access proven processes and templates created by experts.
3. Activator Exchange: Find other cities working on similar projects and suppliers with relevant specialties. (Q3 2019)
4. Activator Finance: Fill out a single form and push a button to be introduced to multiple financiers. (2Q 2021.)

The creation of readiness Challenges are increasingly more important for cities and their organisations as ways to look at ways where cities are educated about how to achive certain benefits such as sustainability, resilience or even the use of data, AI or 5G. Through a combination of online data gathering and interactive education, cities learn about what they need to do to achieve these benefits. These challenges secure a lot of publicity for cities participating and all participants receive free access to Smart Cities Activator with finalists securing attendance at Smart Cities Week and winners a Readiness Workshop.

Readiness Workshops are intensive efforts using Smart Cities Actiavator where a city guided by Council experts are able to accelerate their projects.
Readiness Guide is the Council's contribution to shared online knowledge resources about how to become a smart city. In publication for over 5 years, the Readiness Guide as been considered one of the world's best knowlege resources for making your city smart.

The Global Smart Cities Council Platform organises also the Smart Cities Week - a bi-annual conference produced on the east and west coast of the US and Australia where cities participating in the Council's Readiness Program come to share learnings about how to action on smart cities and the related areas.
