Cities, digital technology and social innovation: french experiences

Over recent years, we have witnessed the constant growth of urban density all around the world: according to the United Nations (UN), around 70% of the world’s population will live in cities by 2050. This global phenomenon is associated with numerous challenges, such as sustainable development and air quality, the transformation of transport and mobility, the preservation of public services, access to health care and the promotion of living better together.
In this publication, France urbaine, an association bringing together major cities, inter-municipalities and metropolises across France, wanted to draw up a panorama of the initiatives implemented by urban centres to make living better together of the city. In keeping with the topical issues of solidarity and access to public services, this publication examines the possible existence of a specific French model of the smart city.
