EarthX and North Lake College will host an evening to explore the idea of what makes a “smart city” smart, from 6 to 8 p.m., February 6, at the Coppell Biodiversity Center. Participants will learn how new technologies and open access to data is transforming our communities, enhancing quality of life and sustaining our resources for future generations.
Smart cities embrace the Internet of Things (IoT), and utilize communication technologies and strategies across all community needs and daily living. The audience will hear from expert speakers from business and government about smart initiatives in our region like 5-G, autonomous vehicles, open data, building sensors, biodiversity meters and more, as well as network with like-minded individuals, meet and learn from local experts and begin to implement practical ideas.
Other DCCCD-EarthX Sustainable U events include UN World Day of Social Justice at Eastfield College on February 20; Trees and Native Landscape at Brookhaven College on March 26 and Future of Recycling at Mountain View College on April 3.
