The goals of the smart city
A 360-degree vision of smart city emerged from the analysis of the speakers. The city of the future moves hand in hand with sustainability, aiming for growth based on a harmonious relationship between nature, technology and human beings. An essential ingredient is the citizen, capable of using all forms of mobility in an integrated, efficient and convenient way. The smart city is a shared city, equipped with smart buildings and solutions at the service of connected and evolved communities.
The primary role of mobility in the smart city
Mobility is a cornerstone of city of the future. The ability to choose how to move allows, in fact, to significantly improve the quality of life of each of us. Suffice it to say that we spend 21 years of our existence moving.
The challenge that opens up on the mobility front must be accepted with rapid and effective responses, according to the speakers of the evening, accelerating technology, lowering costs and making the new solutions available to everyone. The data, moreover, speak for themselves. We are facing an epochal cultural change in the mobility ecosystem. It is estimated that from 2025, 35% of the world population will use an electric car to get around and, most likely, will do so with a self-driving vehicle, not owned and found on an app. "The paradigm of mobility is changing: we are moving from ownership to use, moving with zero-emission vehicles that are hyper-connected to the city's infrastructure”Explains Giorgio Meszely.

The goal to be achieved is far-reaching: to make mobility sustainable not only from an environmental but also from a democratic point of view. Indeed, what is taking shape is one “Universal Basic Mobility”, a universally accessible mobility, open to all, usable with ease, at modest costs and based on a "free" platform in Netflix.
An ambitious goal that, according to the CEO of GaiaGo, can only be achieved through the contribution of all sectors. "In order to create platforms that can make citizens participate, one can no longer ignore the interdisciplinarity between different actors, who until very recently did not speak to each other”Comments Meszely.
The vision proposed by GaiaGo develops starting from this scenario that sees intersectoral convergence as the turning point for smart mobility, "citizen-friendly" mobility. The idea is to make three players communicate with each other: the insurance world, the automotive industry and real estate. How? "With the Residential electric car sharing available to small socially responsible communities, such as hotels, companies or condominiums”- explains the founder of GaiaGo.
It's about a mission, which under the pressure of the digital revolution, aims to make people's lives comfortable, connected and sustainable, through solutions "mobility as a service", Capable of integrating complete electric mobility and an insurance service"on demand"In buildings. An innovative concept of mobility "user centric”, Which will simplify the everyday life of citizens, allowing them to save on the two resources most dear to them: time and money.
