Tokyo – Stockholm Dialogue
Cross-Disciplinary and Transnational Perspectives on
Future Sustainable Smart Cities
October 2022

By 2050, two-thirds of the global population will live in urban areas, which is posing a tremendous challenge for cities to accommodate a wide spectrum of human needs while meeting the challenges of sustainability. This dialogue between the University of Tokyo and academic and research institutions in Sweden, KTH Royal Institute of Technology (representing Stockholm Trio) and Vinnova, aims to discuss different concepts of urbanisation in Europe and Asia and to envision future smart cities that can sustainably increase human wellbeing. This discourse will foster future collaboration between Japan and Sweden in research.
