In recent years, we often hear about "smart city" activities. Local governments, governments, major companies, etc. are participating in activities to solve regional issues using technology all over the country.
In the context of the need for "citizen-centered urban development," I believe it is desirable for citizens themselves to be the starting point.In this session, I will introduce the cases that are being promoted by "citizen origin" and "citizen's strong collaborative participation". I will talk about delicious topics that will inspire people who are facing challenges across the country.
