After having completed this course, students will be able to identify the main principles of the smart, green and sustainable city concepts. Based on particular examples, they will easily determine the features of cities that might be assigned to each group. Students will be able to critically evaluate the above concepts and the way they are used in political and media discourse.
The course aims to present the main principles of the smart, green and sustainable city concepts. Firstly, the definition and theoretical problems of the three concepts as well as other related terms will be presented. A particular emphasis will be placed on their complexity and interconnectivity.
Secondly, six dimensions of Smart city according to Smart City Model will be introduced: Smart Economy, Smart Mobility, Smart Environment, Smart People, Smart Living and Smart Governance along with the factors forming the framework for the indicators enabling the assessment of the city’s performance as smart city.
Finally, based on diverse case studies, good practices and successful initiatives in the field of smart, green and sustainable cities with the use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) will be presented enabling a critical evaluation of the expounded concepts and the methods of their assessment.
