Smart City

Impact Hub Switzerland

Lugano Living Lab, City of Lugano

The idea of Smart City is often associated with a mere technical question, as if a few sensors scattered here and there were enough to give us the coordinates to understand the evolution of our contemporary living. 

The theme, on the other hand, is much broader and has implications that affect every aspect of our daily lives: from social to professional relationships, passing through leisure time, information, relations with institutions, relations with companies and with the products we consume every day, the economy, mobility, urban planning. 

Technology and innovation play a fundamental role in shaping all this, but it is always the human being who has in his hand the spark of design that, in addition to form, can also give a profound sense of the "Possible City", the city of the future.

The event, organized by Sketchin, Impact Hub Switzerland and Mercator Schweiz Foundation, is a participatory round table that was created to investigate precisely these issues: opportunities, scenarios, perspectives, but also risks, doubts and fears related to the evolution of the (urban) contexts in which we live.
