Smart Cities 2021 Conference - Activities of European Cities for Achieving Climate Neutrality
Abstracts of papers can be submitted by 21 June, conference scheduled for 16–17 September 2021 in Ljubljana
In cities, traffic remains one of the biggest sources of CO2 emissions not to have been curbed in recent years. The development of carbon-neutral cities raises the question of which approaches can be used to ensure a turnaround with respect to such emissions so as to preserve or even improve residents’ access to services in the future, thereby safeguarding their mobility. Changes in fuel consumption along with the development of information technologies in the planning, implementing, monitoring and communication with users hold the promise of playing an important role in this. Still, to achieve the ambitious goals concerning CO2 emissions and the broader impacts of traffic on the quality of urban living, these changes alone will not suffice. In the light of these goals and the newly-available technologies, cities will need to reconsider how their residents will live, work and access key services. To achieve this, balanced development will be required, together with the strong intertwining of spatial, traffic and digital accessibility.
