Multi-modal transportation is a current topic of discussion in the IoT and Smart Cities world.  Innovation is key to drive change when it comes to transportation planning and execution.  This panel of experts in logistics, operations, robotics and manufacturing bring together a model that will revolutionize the way people get around in their cities.  By partnering, these companies have developed an innovative and scalable solution utilizing neighborhood electric vehicles to connect people to public transportation as well as getting accurate positioning system in place (Smart Roads). By adding such a service, communities can change their attitudes about using their cars on a daily basis, reducing carbon emissions, traffic congestion and driving economic re-development in transit or food deserts.

Amnick - Creating Next Gen Public Services

Creating the next generation of Public Services in Housing, Health, Transportation, Environment, Education

  • Starting with People (People’s portal, events, involvement etc)

  • Workshops (Harmonising, policies, processes, politicians, people)

  • Strategic Board (Formal (CEO’s, Ministers, Directors) and Informal ordinary people + Tech companies + Education Sector + Private Sector)

  • Working Group (Combining the above of formal and informal to create working pilot projects that are scalable solutions across UK, Europe and the World).

  • Journey Book (Creation of a Handbook of next generation of public services) an easy pick up guide to creating best service delivery practice for 2025 onwards.

  • Our pilots starting in 2018 – Signing of 3 franchises with different cities to begin the above implementation (those signing will join live via Skype from Europe and UK)

Outcomes:

  • Creation of services that are designed by multi-stakeholders (as per Strategic Board above both formal and informal)

  • Lower costs and greater efficiencies using Digital Technologies to improve the quality of life for all

  • Creating Social Change at all levels to bring everyone forward together

  • Using technology to support delivery of next generation of public services better

Our examples of these

  • Housing (demonstration of our Housing portal showing how to bring Housing Communities together to tackle safety, security, loneliness, creating opportunities, improving health and well-being, creating stronger communities). Thus reducing costs on Municipal and Health authorities, creating greater empowerment at local level and in turn creating improvement of quality of life for all.

Sustainable Mass Transit

Mass Transit is the most sustainable solution for cities to combat the effects of global climate change, limit pollution, and reduce the use of fossil fuels. Many cities that have a mass transportation network move millions of people from place to place and more specifically back and forth to work each day, and take millions of people out of their cars, and into a trains, light rail or buses for their daily commute.

Mass transit networks are becoming more sustainable in operations, design, and maintenance, and look at many ways to reduce their emissions and carbon footprint. Mass transportation is helping the world by reducing emissions that pollute the air and increase the greenhouse gasses in the atmosphere.

The presentation will focus on past, present and future environmental sustainable transportation initiatives at MTA New York City Transit, and how one of the largest mass transportation agency in the world incorporates sustainable design into capital construction projects. NYCT’s Department of Capital Program Management (CPM), which organizes its efforts under the structure of ISO 14001 certified Environmental Management System (EMS) since 1999, incorporates environmentally sustainable elements in all of its design and construction projects.

Health and the built environment

An expert discussion exploring how the buildings we live, work, play and sleep in can affect our physical and mental health and wellbeing.

 People spend 90% of their time indoors, but how much do they really know about their built environment – and the elements that could impact their health? In this panel, we’ll explore the connections between green buildings and healthy people, including the designs, technologies and approaches that create spaces – offices, factories, hospitals, schools and more – that promote productivity and wellbeing for residents, employees and visitors. 

Chaired by a Guardian journalist, this session will bring together researchers, business leaders and experts to debate what we know about how the built environment impacts our health – and the changes that could improve how we live.
