Solving Sustainability Challenges with Partnerships and Technology

Metro21 Executive Director Karen Lightman will be speaking at the Smart Cities Winter Gathering | GCTC Utility SuperCluster on Thursday, February 20 in Washington, D.C.

The GCTC Utility SuperCluster focuses on sustainability challenges related to Energy, Water and Waste Management by bringing cities, counties, and municipalities together with technology solution providers, academia, entrepreneurs, non-profit organizations, and associations to celebrate, share best practices and demonstrate world-class innovation.

The Internet of Things (IoT), Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS), and critical infrastructure sectors are becoming increasingly dependent on “smart” architectures and devices in fundamentally new ways. These technologies will enable cities and communities to improve services, promote economic growth, and enhance the quality of life, but also will require thoughtful risk mitigation.

Lightman will touch on Metro21 projects and partnerships that work towards embedding technology into current and potentially crumbling infrastructure, building sustainable urban systems and driving citizen engagement.
