Hi #smartcommunity friends! In this episode of the smart community podcast I have a great conversation with Marius Sylvestersen, the Smart City Program Director for the City of Copenhagen in the Solutions Lab.
We begin by Marius sharing with us his background in sustainability, how he got into the Smart Communities space, his passion for interlinking technology and nature as well as building public and private partnerships and Marius tells us what a Smart Community is to him.
We then discuss how the use of digital technologies helps engage better with the community to accelerate local democracy before Marius shares with us some of the sustainability and green transition projects he is currently working on with the City of Copenhagen.
We finish our chat with Marius sharing some examples of how the City of Copenhagen uses technology to measure carbon neutrality and how they are working towards better mobility in the city. Marius talks about how important it is to listen to the community and understand their language to plan smart communities and we discuss the emerging trends of ‘ethical technology’ and the further use of digital tools for citizen engagement to better serve communities. As always we hope you enjoyed listening to this episode as much as we enjoyed making it.
