ABSTRACT

To facilitate and accelerate Smart Cities, the global smart city network bee smart city supported an analysis of 50 German cities under the publication "Smart City Atlas" and published the “Guide for Practitioners: Smart City / Smart Region” with renowned publication partners under the patronage of the German Federal Government Commissioner for Digitalization. The bee smart city “Guideline for Practitioners: Smart City / Smart Region” includes concrete steps for the sustainable and practice-oriented transformation of your community into a “smart city” based on the Smart City Charter from the German Federal Institute for Building, Urban Affairs and Spatial Development (BBSR) and the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety (BMUB) as well as the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations. The guide enables you to systematically transform your community into a sustainably prosperous and more livable place which is needs-oriented, putting the individual – rather than technology – as the central focus.
