With the existence of the smart city concept, the use of information and communications technology (ICT)becomes more frequent and common. According to the Hong Kong Government, the Smart City Blueprint 2.0 including hundreds of initiatives and digital infrastructure projects was set to improve citizens’ living quality. While most of the citizens have already benefited from the Government’s new public services and resources, the disadvantaged community may be lacking behind including almost 2 million people with disability and elderly in HK. Some unpredictable challenges they may face, such as the confusing navigation information of common facilities like hospitals and bus stops, in accessible website information and neglected potential business opportunities out of theirbasic needs.
Sponsored by Home and Youth Affair Bureau, HKSAR Government, SE Lab 2022 @CWD aims to reveal this neglected demand and help the respective stakeholders in overcoming the obstacles. This is also a good milestone to consolidate experience of anti-pandemic crisis tostrengthen a resilient Inclusive Smart City collectively.
We plan to bring inspeakers from different areas to share their own innovative ideas and strategies as well as representatives from listed companies, chambers of commerce, professional organizations, social innovation institutions and community leaders to brainstorm solutions for a smart city for all.
