    NEST – The Networked Society Forum

    NEST 2013 was an invitation only event being held in Miami, from November 17-19. Joining us were people with the world’s biggest hearts and minds: inspiring individuals who engaged in debate and meaningful discussion to make a lasting impact.

    During NEST week, three business students from IAE Universidad Austral in Buenos Aires won the hearts and minds of 60 of the world’s top ICT executives and thinkers after winning the final stage of a four-month contest involving 31 of the world’s top business schools on five continents.

    Reinventing urban life is the theme for NEST 2013 focusing upon urban life as the context for development of new, game-changing opportunities within three key aspects of tomorrow’s city – mobility, commerce and collaboration:

    Redefining Mobility

    Urbanized society is constantly on the move – a world where 6 billion people will find new ways to meet, connect and exchange ideas on a daily basis.

    The Connected Marketplace

    From market square to hypermarket, from e-commerce to m-commerce, the flows of our most basic daily necessities are being dramatically reshaped by new technical and logistical networks. Cities will be the centers of a radical transformation in the ways we buy, sell and distribute goods and services.

    The Collaborative City

    The city of the future will be one that grows, evolves and responds according to the needs of its inhabitants. It is an opportunity for citizens around the world, and from all classes of society, to actively shape their city’s evolution.

    City Life

    City Life

    Today, more people live in cities than in rural areas, and by 2050, about 70 percent of the world’s population is expected to reside in urban areas.

    By transforming our cities, we can improve the lives of billions of people along with the health and future of the planet itself.
