Hyper-LOCAL solutions to GLOBAL problems
Co-hosted by MIT City Science and Taipei Tech
This event was hosted virtually in October of 2021 with MIT City Science and Taipei Tech. For this summit, the teams welcomed members of the City Science Network, collaborators, industry experts and like-minded planners, engineers, scientists and artists for five days of presentations and workshops.
The City Science Network proposes that transnational problems such as climate change and public health are best addressed in cities, one community at a time. Future cities, described as clusters of high-performing, entrepreneurial, and walkable communities, would allow for more livable, resilient neighborhoods that aspire to achieve the following goals: zero commuting, zero energy, maximum creative collisions, maximum equity, and maximum public health. These communities will define a unique combination of density, diversity, access, and public amenities to inspire, promote social interaction, ensure equity, and increase creative and entrepreneurial engagement.
