The world is growing more urban every day. According to the United Nations, 2050 the urbanite population will grow by 3 billion people.
The future of our planet will be defined by the future of our cities. The ideas behind a smart city have been around for two decades, and few question the immense potential behind the concept. So why isn't the movement happening faster? Taking incremental steps can be the solution.
