Recap Online Mission India: 100 Smart Cities in 5 Years

Our Online Mission flew to India on Thursday 11 June 2020. Where we met Mr Kunal Kumar, Joint Secretary & Mission Director (Smart Cities Mission), Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs, Government of India. He is leading an ambition mission to accomplish 100 smart cities in 5 years – connected, liveable, energy efficient, adaptive and resilient cities. But what does ‘smart’ mean in a city? And how do we welcome the people-aspect in the Smart City discussion? Watch the recording of his presentation.
This Online Mission was opened by deputy mayor Mrs Saskia Bruines (i.a. Smart City) of the city of The Hague (the Netherlands).

This online get-together is made possible by the Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO).
