  • Summary

    Living Labs Global joins forces with Copenhagen, Barcelona and Kaohsiung to meet the challenges in Mobility, Environment and Well-being in our cities.

    From around the world Cities, Companies and Experts will engage in a day of networking to use innovations to turn challenges into opportunities. Pilots in the City of Copenhagen, together with a Showcase of latest innovations from around the world will provide the setting, in which 

      • Cities will declare their challenges and intentions; 
      • Companies will pitch their solutions; 
      • Experts provide insights to trigger discussion; 
      • Visioning Workshops deliver future solutions.

      Three areas of services in cities will be prioritised at this Summit, allowing cities and companies to build partnerships, share experiences, build a common understanding of future trends and the growing demand for innovative business models.

      1. Mobility in Cities

       

      Mobility is no longer just a matter of the means of transport, but a condition in which citizens and visitors expect to receive services and information. The cities of Copenhagen, Barcelona and Kaohsiung continue to invest as pioneers in integrating bicycles into the urban mobility systems, using them not only as a means to get from A-B, but as a driver for sustainability, to promote new integrated planning concepts, accessibility and meet the changing lifestyle expectations of citizens. New products and solutions will be presented in this theme, as well as new planning concepts, business opportunities and service models from Europe, Asia and the US.

      2. Environment, Energy and Smart Living in Cities

       

      Sustainability has become the catch-phrase for many initiatives in cities covering areas such as generation of renewable energy, targets for becoming zero-emission communities (e.g. Copenhagen 2025), new ways of metering usage, protecting water resources and improving the quality of the environment. The Summit will represent different types of demand: New cities in the making are searching for integrated energy and environmental concepts, whilst existing cities seek to upgrade their existing services and infrastructures to an age of sustainability. Solution providers will showcase their new technologies, business models. services and visions for our future communities.

      3. Wellbeing & Prevention of Disease in Cities

      Steno Health Promotion Centre

      "Social city life – Radical perspectives on health and wellbeing in the city" is the theme of this panel, taking architectonic, pedagogical and technological perspectives on the spaces and structures for improving living conditions in cities. The health challenges are many, but so are the technological and social means to address them. Urbanisation has led to increased incidences of obesity and derived diabetes, cardio-vascular diseases and other non-communicable diseases. These increasing health problems both decrease quality of life for many citizens and place a burden on health care systems. It is increasingly recognised that lifestyle diseases can be prevented by new measures helping citizens to change their lifestyle and providing better framework conditions. Global bodies, including the WHO, are calling for urgent action. However, changing lifestyles and choices is challenging, despite the economic, societal, and personal benefits change can bring. Participants in this session will discuss how it is possible to re-think healthy living conditions in a radically new way into the mental, physical and virtual structures of the city.
