A defining feature of smart cities is the ability of the component systems to interoperate each other and the incorporation of technology in as many decision-making processes as possible. But the question we address here is, what is the roll of the youth in making those processes effective city and what are the job opportunities young people need to find? 

Every city needs to have a serious policy to involve the youth into the development of the city’s vision, smartness and job market.

Lecture, discussion, group exercises, and solo presentations.

Hands-on exercises provide a practical approach that enables you to apply the methods learned during and after the workshop. Several tools are provided for you to implement. You will present a portion of the training materials brought with you to the group.

Please bring a laptop with Microsoft Powerpoint and Word included and your own training presentation on a memory stick for a truly interactive workshop.
