Compassionate Cities

A Smart City must also be a Compassionate Community in order to ensure that the needs of all the inhabitants of that community are recognized and met, the well-being of the entire community is a priority and all people and living things are treated with respect. This type of focus within the realm of Smart Cities can entail increased mobility options for residents who do not own personal vehicles, enhanced opportunities for clean, affordable energy, and easy access to real-time crime, to name just a few examples.

In August 2016, the Orlando City Council signed the Charter for Compassion and unanimously adopted a resolution designating Orlando as a Compassionate City. By signing the charter, Orlando joins the more than 50 countries, 70 cities and two million individuals across the globe who have committed to working together to embrace and apply compassionate solutions.
