Master in Smart Cities. Designing with Citizens

When the smart city concept first emerged during the last decade, it constituted the contribution of information and communication technology (ICT) to the development of cities for learning, adaptation and innovation. However, since then the concept has shifted towards a more neoliberal stance promoted by multinational companies, who view ICT as a means of enhancing the competitiveness of cities through the development of the digital economy.

The Master’s degree in Smart Cities. Designing with Citizens, coordinated by the Design for All Foundation and Bau Design College of Barcelona takes the approach that competitiveness, economic development and improved efficiency in cities should not be an end in itself. Rather, it should be the natural consequence of the active involvement of citizens in the evolution of urban societies towards greater sustainability, as the harmonious development of a city may only be achieved through the will and empowerment of healthier, more creative and socially engaged citizens....

We live in a world of cities, and our planet is increasingly urban. Cities are the new engines of the global economy, and at the same time, they can be the main actors to face the challenges of climate change and fight against inequality and poverty. If in the past we lived through stages in which the world was organized by empires and then by nation-states, in the future we will live increasingly in a world of cities, in a world of SuperCities.

We are living an unprecedented "digital revolution" at the confluence of 4 megatrends that are cloud computing, mobile devices, social networks and intelligence applied to "Big Data". We have never had more computing capacity or easier access to information, or better physical and digital communication options and this is changing the way people live, work, have fun, learn and relate. Politics, the economy, society, and of course cities are also changing, which today enjoy opportunities that previously didn’t exist.... [-]
