The need  

Future Cities Dialogue

•  The ci/es  that  have  done  best  throughout  history  are  those   that  have  best  met  the  core  and  shiEing  needs  of  their   ci/zens   •  Increasing  global  urbanisa/on,  and  decreasing  resources   mean  ci/es  will  have  to  do  more  with  less   •  This  means  not  just  doing  things  beKer,  but  doing  beKer   things  


The opportunity  

Future Cities Dialogue

The market  for  integra/on  services  is  very  large,  but   what  does  it  prac/cally  look  like?     •  Which  systems  can  be  integrated?   •  Where  does  integra/on  lead  to  resilience,  and     where  instability?   •  What  do  ci/zens  want  from  integrated  systems?   •  How  do  we  ensure  that  the  compe//ons  we  run     and  the  projects  we  back  are  heading  towards  the     integrated  urban  future  that  people  want?   .  .  .  .  so  that  we  can  improve  urban  resilience  &  UK  business  success

Future Cities Dialogue

UK ci/es  are  dense  and  centred  around  small,  self–contained  communi/es.  Urban  services   are  integrated  on  a  small–scale  and  by  repurposing  exis/ng  infrastructure.  They  are  oEen   locally–run,  and  include  everything  from  health  to  energy  to  food  supply.  Innova/on  is   ci/zen–led  and  enabled  by  distributed  manufacturing  technologies  and  digital  plaVorms.    


Market Newton  

Future Cities Dialogue

This is  a  high–tech,  highly  integrated  world.  The  internet  of  things  is  everywhere,  and  virtual   reality  is  commonplace  and  widely  used  for  work  and  leisure.  People  wear  devices  that   gather  data  about  their  health,  ea/ng  habits,  and  leisure,  and  then  sell  this  informa/on  to   private  companies  or  exchange  it  for  services.  There  are  high  levels  of  automa/on  and   correspondingly  high  rates  of  unemployment  and  inequality;  a  large  sec/on  of  society   survives  on  a  small  basic  income  topped  up  by  sporadic  work  in  the  virtual  economy.      


Greater Harchester  

Future Cities Dialogue

The UK  has  moved  to  a  federal  system  of  governance  and  devolu/on  to  large  city–regions.   The  popula/on  has  grown  to  over  73  million  people,  and  the  UK  looks  set  to  have  the   largest  popula/on  in  the  EU  in  the  next  5  years.  Na/onal  government  has  been  slimmed   down  but  s/ll  has  a  strong  role  holding  the  regions  together,  framing  na/onal  policy  in   areas  such  as  defence  and  foreign  policy,  and  overseeing  key  connec/ve  na/onal   infrastructure  such  as  intercity  rail  links  and  the  na/onal  grid.    


8 design  principles  for  urban  integrated   systems:   •  Resilient  and  evolu)onary   –  Redundancy  built  in   –  Mul)ple  solu)ons  

•  Tech-­‐enabled, but  not  tech-­‐centered     –  Not  everything  has  to  be  ‘smart’   –  Encourage  social  interac)on  and  build  skills  

•  Well-­‐governed –  Governance  comes  from  many  quarters  

•  Sustainable –  Enable  urban  natural  capital   –  Build  social  fabric   Future Cities Dialogue


8 design  principles  for  urban  integrated   systems:   •  Human  centered   –  Integra)ng  systems  =  integra)ng  people   –  S)mulate  par)cipa)on  

•  Globally linked   –  Learn  from  others   –  Create  communi)es  of  interest  

•  Value networked     –  Costs  and  benefits  of  system  change  fall  on  many   –  Convene  the  unusual  suspects  

•  Transparent –  Respect  for  privacy  &  data  ownership   Future Cities Dialogue


Next steps   a)  Focus  the  city  impera/ve   b)  S/mulate  new  innova/ons   c)  Develop  new  business  models   d)  Understand  and  build  the  ci/zen  markets   Future Cities Dialogue
