Abstract

Nowadays, smart city is a term recurring in many political discourses and in literature. Indeed, smart cities provide innovative solutions to solve urban issues. However, this concept and its implications remain obscure to the larger public. In order to help younger citizens understand what lies behind the smart city, we developed a workshop aiming at introducing the concept of smart city in all its complexity.We present here the results of the first in-school session of the workshop. It shows promising results on the engagement of children as well as an evolution in their understanding of the smart city.
