I was invited to speak in Barcelona and enjoyed the visit back to the city where I grew up as teenager. The Smart City Expo was very well organized on a modern site that I remember geographically in a time of economic decline due to the disappearance of factories to low wage countries and the closure of local screwdriver operations in the early 90’s. Now I came to a modern city development of high rises and exposition buildings. Here you can watch a short video impression:
My own pitch had been placed in the session Society – Technology: driven tools and services for social well-being and aging populations
From minute 50 I talk 10 minutes about the core values and Sustainocracy
At the end of the session journalists remarked that I had been the only one they had met during the entire Expo that had addressed the core human values rather than technology. I sincerely expect that next year there will be many more, as peer 4 societal development (Sustainocracy) will be recognized as evolutionary step to transform city’s vulnerability to innovative strength.
