The Bertelsmann Stiftung is hosting a “Smart Country—Participation for Everyone!?” workshop on the topic during the Metropolitan Solutions.
Smart Country addresses society’s twenty-first century challenges. In an ideal world, intelligent technology and networks should enable participation for everyone and ensure equal standards of living in both urban and rural areas.
It has already become apparent that conditions differ greatly across Germany. The constitutional right to equal standards of living is becoming evermore debatable. How can we accomplish digital bridge building? Topics including economy and work, health and care, digital infrastructure and demographic development will showcase the problems and demonstrate the digital opportunities.
