From the disinterested will of a group of personalities, citizens, experts, academics, thinkers, creatives, philosophers, evangelists, consultant, pioneers, visionaries, etc. involved in professional or solidarity missions in a wide range of projects and whose know-how and human values (ethical, moral and social) guarantee the needs of transparency and credibility for complex and naturally long processes.
Who are we?
Among ZGSC members, we can find personalities and names with proven experience and know-how in a wide range of areas and fields in Portugal and around the world. The credibility of the platform is the most powerful element to promote the work and actions for a better future.
A global movement based in Portugal with the main purpose to spread and promote awareness and information about ideas, technology, urbanism, creativeness, and thinking (philosophical, anthropological and sociological) through cities and communities.
A platform that questions, points and tries to solve problems and challenges that, each and every day, are becoming more and more complex and visible. But solutions for these problems are sometimes not instant and can’t be disconnected from reality just through marketing and propaganda. Most of the challenges need to be solved in a solid, intelligent and sustainable way.
ZOOM GLOBAL SMART CITIES ASSOCIATION wants to bring light to decision-makers and citizens, opening new paths, sustainable and adjustable, to what are each city and communities natural limitations, protecting the social and economic fabrics so that results may be visible and clear to everyone, through solid and strategic foundations for future generations.
Knowledge & Experience
Ideally, in any field of activity, all projects should be carried out by competent and knowledgeable teams.
In Smart Cities, and as this is increasingly a transdisciplinary area, it is urgent to ensure that you have the best at your service, a team that guarantees that something as important as promoting the development and well-being of its populations or satisfaction of its customers, users and, of course, citizens.
As an Association that includes independent and individual professional consultants there is a public commitment to not get undue profits, neither the exploitation of any resources or abuse of charges and public offices, to keep our activity totally transparent and focused on the main purpose to promote the social and economic progress with ethics and other intangible human values.
We base our actions in ethical and moral values, references that society should let not fall or even hide otherwise next generations can be compromised and lost for increasingly materialistic and individualistic behaviours. In a time when the majority of the debate and discussions about the Future in the Cities are oriented to the technology, artificial intelligence (AI) and other mainstream topics, we want to focus an alternative path with a balanced approach to create strategies and execute the plans to build real intelligent cities for the future.
