The modern world is becoming more and more urbanized. The processes of globalization, water and food shortages, and the lack of work in rural areas cause an increase in the inflow of people to cities. All these factors and many more set a new way of perceiving cities. Cities face increasing social, economic, environmental, and even technological challenges that pose the questions: "what does a smart city really look like?" and "who is it for?"
Smart-city is not only a place of economic and cultural life or a place of living for an urban community but also becomes an intelligent, self-regulating space, able to adapt to changing conditions. Smart city - a city that "lives and thinks" and ensures maximum welfare to its inhabitants, taking into account environmental issues and the interests of people with special needs.
In this course, students will have the opportunity to explore social inequalities in the urban environment through the following topics: Transport and Mobility, Ecosystems, Food Systems, Water, Energy, Buildings and Infrastructure and Waste / Resource Recovery, Urban Management, and Accessibility Opportunities to People's Services and Amenities with special needs.
The aim of the course is to familiarize students with the smart-city concept and to present and analyze the most prosperous smart cities in various regions of the world, as well as to examine how the concept of universal planning fits into the smart city concept. During the classes, we will analyze the issues related to the urban environment (similarities and differences in the approaches to the smart-city concept) based on case studies from different cities of the world, based on articles in scientific journals and textbooks, and our own experience.
