Intelligent Community Forum: Creating Intelligent Sustainable Communities

Guests: Robert Bell, John Jung & Louis Zacharilla

The Intelligent Community Forum (ICF) is a global network of cities and regions with a think tank at its center. Its mission is to help communities use information and communications technology (ICT) to create inclusive prosperity, to tackle social and governance challenges and to enrich their quality of life. The ICF think tank studies how Intelligent Communities use ICT to succeed in the broadband economy. As effective leaders, it is critical to attend to the geographic environment and the ecosystems in which we live and work and explore how this ecosystem impacts the success of the organization and the leader. During the interview, the founders share: 1. Why they started the ICF 2. How do organizations benefit from being located within intelligent communities? 3. What is a healthy ecosystem? 4. What is the difference between a smart city and an intelligent city? 5. Why should leaders contribute to community building?
