With 80% of its population living in the cities, Latin America is experiencing various challenges in urban development such as population density, pollution, water and waste management, internet accessibility, and public safety. Despite the vast diversity and extension of the region, many of the challenges the cities face today share similarities in nature.
This Pre-workshop will serve as the cornerstone in the establishment of the Latin America Smart Cities Network (LASCN), an open-ended regional network for knowledge exchange and smart city cooperation in LATAM led by WeGO. During the event, experts will analyze the current regional trends and challenges, leading cities will share their most recent smart city initiatives, and through a panel discussion, participants will address the role of the LASCN in achieving smart city transformation in Latin America. Mayors, CIOs, municipal administrators, government officials, and ambassadors are expected to gather at this exclusive event.
Join us to learn more about this new initiative that will help to shape the future of smart city development in Latin America.
