People are the heart and soul of the green urban development movement. Urban dwellers have turned into smart city experts, transforming their cities into sustainable living spaces which ensure a high-quality of living despite rapidly growing populations. People for smarter cities come together to create grass-roots movements, raise awareness, pool resources, and collectively shrink the impact cities have on the environment. People are the brains behind new concepts and the visionaries that foresee a world that creates no waste. The driving force for change, smart city people are the future.
