Most citizens want their city to be smart and green, or they will move to one – a new report shows. Among 10,000 respondents, 58% believe smart cities are more sustainable and 42% are prepared to vote with their feet by leaving their town due to pollution concerns.
According to the Capgemini Research Institute, today’s city living is falling short of citizens’ increased expectations in the digital age. Smart cities, on the contrary, appear to provide a better quality of services – which is also why over a third of citizens are willing to pay more for some changes.
