A population explosion is occurring simultaneous with a massive shift of people moving from rural to urban living. In 1950 at a mere 2.5 billion, we were almost evenly distributed between rural and urban areas. Today we have a global population three times that of 1950, and 80% of the developed world now live in cities. Our home planet, Earth, must now be wisely cared for if we are to address this exponentially growing problem. Adding to these issues, each year we are consuming 1.5x Earth’s sustainable resources. This cannot continue. The cities of the world must begin to seriously address the issue of sustainable living. If we can work collaboratively to solve these problems, we will all benefit from sharing our best ideas.

This collective problem solving and sharing of solutions will also help us better appreciate our common needs and similar aspirations. In the session open platforms and geospatial tools for building these sustainable living solutions will be presented. These applications, which will contribute to an "OpenCitySmart" will provide the functionalities a city needs to smartly manage urban living, i.e., infrastructure, power, water, sewer, etcetera, transportation, city services, fire, safety, construction, permits, everything a city needs, even support for optimizing agriculture. 

Szándék szerint WWEC 2016 pályázat a Shanghaiban szeptemberben rendezett Urban Transitions konferencián is nyilvánosságot kaphat, hiszen (Patrick Hogan a rendezvény szervező bizottsági tagja.
