Every day, smart cities gathered more strength and currently more governments are adopting measures to create and develop sustainable smart city technological platforms and projects.

The "smart citizen" is key for cities

In the coming years, it is projected that these initiatives will focus on the use of sensors and monitors of urban services to enable citizens a  smarter use of resources and public services while minimizing costs.

Nonetheless, citizens need motivation to promote a responsible and collaborative attitude toward new smart city developments and projects.

These “smart citizens” should have access to the technological means and incentives necessaries to convince them of their role in the development of smart cities, to be a part of the projects and maintain an active participation through the valuation of resources.
