Telecommunicators’ work in the sustainable city

Understanding the role of ICT in future sustainable cities.

Project title

Telecommunicators’ work in the sustainable city (TeleSY) (2010-2012)

Project description

In future cities mobile communication technologies and broadband internet will be fully implemented. This opens up opportunities for organizing work in a more sustainable way. Employees can pursue their work at home, at office or in other settings such as telecottages, company hotels or latte offices. Collaborative tools like videoconferences, tele-presence and social media can potentially decrease the need for travel. The project aims to understand and describe how we will work in future sustainable cities.
