London

Sharing Cities aims to irreversibly change the way we think about the role of digital technology in our cities. We aim to create a more collaborative smart cities market that dramatically increases the speed and scale at which we implement smart solutions across European cities.

I am joining forces with organisations like Tech London Advocates – Women in Tech and Digital Leaders so we can work together to make the tech industry much more diverse.

Sadiq Khan, Mayor of London and former Labour MP for Tooting

The London Boroughs have long had a relationship of opportunity and barriers to participation in the Capital’s economy. Digital is changing that, offering residents access to new jobs in the centre, a growing local digital economy and opportunities to collaborate with their communities. As a London resident I hope DL London will help drive the Capital’s Digital conversation.
