The Smarter Cities debate series, part of Future Debates, is coming to Plymouth, with Dan Byles, Chair of SmarterUK and Vice President of Living PlanIT, leading a discussion on how smart technology can shape and solve issues that arise in communities as urban populations grow and funding resources shrink.
The event is taking place at Plymouth’s Devonport Guildhall, RIO’s social enterprise community hub, on Thursday 11th February from 6:30-9pm. It will focus on how solutions can be introduced which deliver community services more efficiently, whilst lowering the environmental impact, and raising the quality of life in cities.
Dan Byles who will be leading the discussion was a British Member of Parliament serving on the Energy and Climate Change Select Committee and the Science and Technology Select Committee.

The event is supported by RIO in the South West, as well as i-DAT, the RSA South West, Co-Cars and Plymouth City Council. The national programme is supported by the British Science Association and the RSA.
