Smart City Expo World Congress
About the Smart City Expo World Congress
Smart City Expo World Congress is an international event held annually in Barcelona. The congress brings players from cities all around the world to bring forward discussions to create a better future for cities and their citizens.
This year the congress is focused to present two main themes:
Towards zero waste
Towards zero waste is an initiative in line with the European Commission’s Circular Economy strategy based on the use of fewer materials, reuse and recycling of products, and no food waste. Since 2016, local initiatives and projects have been invited to present their objectives to create efficient, inclusive and sustainable cities to show practical examples that can be followed by other cities.
Towards Inclusivity highlights all the actions taken to make sure the event is accessible to all and that everyone feels represented and has a voice here. In particular, the event has taken solutions and actions towards disability, gender, beliefs, languages and baby care.
