Every year, The City Leaders Summit provides a high-level dialogue platform for mayors and city leaders around the world to exchange opinions on smart city governance, innovative strategies, and visions for development. The participants are able to outline the promising smart future of their home cities according to the characteristics, location and culture of the city itself.
The Summit is not just one of the biggest highlights of the Smart City Summit and Expo, and the world’s largest networking platform among smart city governments. In 2019, it hit the record by engaging 128 city representatives to attend in person. Even with the impact of COVID-19 from 2020 and onwards, the Summit was still held annually and attracted over a hundred municipal delegates to join the live-streaming event. This year, since the reopening of national borders, we will pay more attention to better facilitate physical interactions between cities. The 2023 Net Zero City Leaders Summit will gather over 100 city representatives from around the globe for in-depth dialogues regarding the latest outlooks, solutions, and new propositions for smart cities.
The concepts of Net Zero and smart cities are closely related because both focus on creating sustainable and resilient cities. By integrating Net Zero Goals into the planning and implementation of smart city initiatives, cities can work towards achieving a more sustainable and livable urban environment. The Net Zero City Leaders Summit will focus on the implementation strategies, and actions of smart cities, especially in 2 focal areas: transportation and buildings, the largest sources of greenhouse gas emissions. The topics for the sessions will be “The trend of zero-carbon urban” and “Using smart technology to reach Zero-Carbon Building”, to bring together state-of-art solutions and strategies, to help smart cities achieve their Net Zero Goals.
