About Us

Smart Cities Council ASEAN is the region's leading authority in smart cities. As a member-based organisation we dedicate our time to helping catalyse action and investment in technology and data solutions.

Our mission is clear - we envision a world where technology and data have been harnessed to create smart, sustainable cities and communities with high-quality living and high-quality jobs.

Our work is guided by the direction set within the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). They are purpose-driven, global and member nations of ASEAN have committed to advancing them. And at the SCC we firmly believe that technology and data can accelerate the outcomes expressed by the SDGs, helping our communities to thrive and prosper.

To help achieve these outcomes we do four things:

INFORM - Create knowledge resources that build capacity to act and invest.

EDUCATE - Deliver the Smart Cities Readiness Program, powered by Activator.

CONVENE - Bring our community together to engage in meaningful dialogue to advance best practice.

ADVOCATE - Help shape a policy environment that accelerates smart cities action and investment.

For more than three and a half years we have been informing, educating, conveneing and advocating for smart cities action in the region. From the development of our globally acclaimed resources, to the premier gathering of smart cities leaders (Smart Cities Week), we have become the peak body for government, industry and academia to partner with in helping build capacity to act.

We are building a smart cities movement. Join us.
