Digital Technology and
Human Empowerment for Urban Conviviality
Digital Technology and Conviviality
In recent years, Asian cities have been drawn into a massive vortex of change. In particular, the unprecedented socio-economic and environmental changes associated with the fourth industrial revolution, climate crisis, and the pandemic have forced cities and citizens to transform themselves. To survive in the tide of change, we must respond to the enormous challenges and crises, technologically and institutionally, in a proper manner. What is also required is to create a new urban environment, in which diverse agents work together for “conviviality”.
The 1st Asia Urban Actors Cooperation Conference
Based on the recognition, we are launching the first Asia Urban Actors Cooperation Seminar on October 31, 2022 to: restore solidarity to resolve massive vortex of change and the urban crisis facing Asia, strengthen global collective intelligence, and create amicable relations between Korean and Asian cities. The seminar will collectively explore how smart technology can contribute to the development of the capabilities of society members in realizing urban conviviality, and what roles the government, local governments, and businesses can play for the purpose.
