European smart and sharing cities conference 22-23 November in Prague


The Ministry of Regional Development of the Czech Republic, in cooperation with UNECE and the Fakulta architektury ČVUT v Praze, is organizing the international conference “European Smart and Sharing Cities” in Prague on 22 and 23 November 2018. This conference will address how digital technologies and platforms have an influence on cities in the UNECE region.


Digital technologies and online platforms increasingly influence the quality of life in cities. The internet of things and, at the same time, sharing of properties, cars, services, etc. are new phenomena, changing not only the way of thinking of citizens, entrepreneurs and politicians but also their behaviour. Sharing economy concepts radically change consumer behaviour as well as the delivery of services from entrepreneurs.


The main goals of the conference are to:


1.  Discuss various aspects of urban development in light of the implementation of the UN and EU documents on housing and urban development, including the 2030 Agenda, the New Urban Agenda, the Geneva UN Charter on Sustainable Housing and the Urban Agenda for the EU;

2.  Share experiences, practices and lessons learned;

3.  Present case studies from cities in the region;

4.  Discuss regulatory frameworks and roles and responsibilities of national and local governments.


Detailed information about the conference, including logistical information, can be found in the attached information document and on this website To register, please fill in the online form found on the website by 9 November 2018. Participation is free of charge, but accommodation and travel costs will have to be covered by the participants.



Best regards,


UNECE Housing and Land Management Unit
