The world's population is growing rapidly. At the beginning of 2021, there were about 8 billion people living on earth. Most people will live in urban areas.
Housing shortages, unemployment, congested roads, bottlenecks in electricity and water supply , pollution, broken infrastructures lead to significant social, economic, environmental and medical challenges: The large number of people in a limited space creates countless problems that could be reduced and solved through digital products and services.
DIn addition, climate protection measures need to be implemented in order to protect people from the worst consequences of climate change through flooding and heat. For this, it is essential that, among other things, CO2 emissions are reduced. This also requires technical answers on how to deal with additional water and increasing heat. Smart cities therefore also need complementary ecological solutions in order to develop into green cities.
The digital transformation as a whole means a huge upheaval. The transformation to "smart" and networked cities is also a mammoth task that cannot be accomplished by politicians and other actors overnight. We at GSK are at your side in the modelling of concepts and implementation, the time is here to tackle it.
