July 2019 – The future of mobility
This special Buzz report addresses the challenges of citizen mobility and provides insight into the latest industry solutions. Key industry players discuss smart mobility. It is now widely accepted that by 2030, mobility will be dramatically different from today, especially in large urban areas.
In this Buzz feature we envision a mobility future where transport seamlessly connects people’s lives, where consumers are able to get from point A to point B in a way which is cheaper, cleaner, safer; and our journeys become productive and entertaining extensions of our day-to-day routines.

The current shifting paradigm is not only changing the world as we know it but also the way we work. Buzz takes an in depth look at the changing culture and innovation in the work place, the war on talent, fostering innovation, learning, homeworking, globalization and in short, everything about ‘the workplace of the future’.

Cities of today not tomorrow
More than ever, what happens in cities is shaping our world. The future of the world’s urban population will mostly be built in our lifetimes. The challenges we face are immense and only by working together will we be able to tackle them. Our Buzz smart living feature gives cities a platform and a chance to showcase urban action. We speak to pioneering governments, companies, entrepreneurs and research centers about disruptive projects and new solutions for the future.

New digital technologies together with an economic and organizational transition from closed firms to open platforms has changed the pattern of work within the modern metropolis. The office building is no longer the sole workplace typology and work activity has intensified in other urban locations. The question Buzz asks is: “How might smart cities reinterpret workplace culture at the urban scale outside the framework of office buildings typology?
