Random readings on society, politics and change – Jorge Carrillo
The ‘smart-eco city’ concept captures the recent trend for future-oriented urban development schemes that display both ‘green’ and ‘smart’ ambitions. More precisely, the smart-eco city is defined as “an experimental city which functions as a potential niche where both environmental and economic reforms can be tested and introduced in areas which are both spatially proximate (the surrounding region) and in an international context (through networks of knowledge, technology and policy transfer and learning)”.
The report profiles 12 cities in China, selected on the basis that they have relatively substantial smart-eco ambitions and/or activities already taking place. This selection was made following a wider ‘horizon scan’ of smart and eco initiatives taking place in each country.
