National Geographic launches smart city section

National Geographic launched a Smart Cities hub to celebrate sustainable cities around the world where visionary locals and savvy civic leaders have joined forces to create communities that everyone

can love. They call us to travel with them to a few of their favorite (smart) cities and discover the surprising secrets of the world’ s most progressive places. Cities are centers of innovation, beehives of social activity, hotbeds of creativity, and among the world’ s most fascinating places to visit. And cities are growing; by 2030 the United Nations estimates that 61 percent of the world’ s population will be living in urban areas. National Geographic knows that the best destinations are ones where both locals and visitors feel at home. Access the column here:
