Smart Classes Digest: Issue #06


Welcome to the final 2021 edition of Smart Classes Digest, our bimonthly e-digest for Smart City-Region stakeholders and the Smart Classes community!

Issue #06 “Insights” ask:

  • How do we cut car use in London?  
  • Can cities be hyperlocal?   
  • Why will successful smart cities be impossible without decentralised technologies?  
  • What changes should local government implement to reduce climate change and help people adapt to its impacts? 
  • How have transportation modes evolved from pre-history through to the contemporary era and what are the future applications? 
  • How does the battle between ‘out’ and ‘down’ translate into COP26 week 2 outcomes?  

…and thought provoking contributions from our sponsors, Padam Mobility and City REDI, reveal:

  • 10 success factors to reduce the costs of your DRT and optimise on-demand systems 
  • The future role of e-cargo bikes in ‘last-mile’ logistics across the West Midlands and other city-regions
