In the last 20 years, and especially the past 2-3 years, there has been a tendency: the majority of the population wants to live in megalopolises.
A generation has already grown up that is used to living in a digital world, and they have increased requirements for the digitalization of cities.
All systems – transport, healthcare, culture, sports – must meet these increased requirements of the residents of a digital city. Ksenia Sukhotina, General Director of OJSC Rosatom – Infrastructure Solutions, spoke about this at the Global Impact Conference on December 1, 2021.
According to her, the “smart city” works for older people as well. Residents of 30 closed cities of Rosatom are under the care of Rosatom, where the state corporation handles everything, from kindergartens to transport and programs for pensioners. Now residents can write about a problem to the authorities and get an answer much faster than before, before the use of Internet. More and more people can take part in the governance of the city. For Rosatom, the strategy for the development of cities of presence is one of the priorities. Rosatom gathers communities of citizens and helps them to implement their initiatives.
As Ksenia Sukhotina noted, sustainable development is in the interconnection of different elements.
“When we talk about environmental friendliness, these are such changes that are irreversible, we will not let them roll back to a time when we cared less about the environment,” Sukhotina noted.
In her opinion, the need for energy will grow more and more due to the increasing comfort of people, and the importance of Rosatom will also grow.
People who think about their future build their region in terms of reliability and stability. The world is faced with the need to make quick decisions to confront digital threats. The need to ensure security in specific areas is growing. And digital solutions are helping to do this. Rosatom – Infrastructure Solutions keeps up with the times and helps to implement digital solutions in all territories of its presence.
The launch of the Impact Team 2050 project will help achieve this goal. This is an international youth advisory council under the General Director of Rosatom, Alexey Likhachev. You can find out more and submit an application before March 1, 2022, here.
