SUMMER COURSE 2024 SMART CITY, DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION AND SOCIETY IN SOUTHEAST ASIA


SMART CITY, DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION AND SOCIETY IN SOUTHEAST ASIA SUMMER COURSE 2024 is an summer course held by Center for Southeast Asian Social Studies, Universitas Gadjah Mada, since 2024. This program is designed for students, researchers, practitioners, or professionals who are interested in Smart City, Digital Transformation and Society Southeast Asia.

Technological advancements have ushered in an era of disruption, catalyzing profound shifts across diverse spheres of life. Among the most notable impacts is the rise of smart cities, a global phenomenon aimed at leveraging cutting-edge technology for regional advancement and digital transformation. Smart cities are characterized by their focus on enhancing efficiency, sustainability, and the overall quality of urban life, integrating technology into various aspects of society. Yet, amidst rapid technological progress, resource constraints, and intricate social dynamics, the imperative for inclusive, interdisciplinary dialogue looms large. Such discourse is essential to ensure that smart city initiatives in Southeast Asia are not merely aligned with global trends, but also rooted in the unique needs and nuances of the region and its inhabitants, fostering societal well-being and equitable development.


Program

Technological advances have ushered in an era of disruption, dramatically transforming various aspects of life, notably through the emergence of the smart city concept, now a global trend. With the rise of information and communication technology (ICT), cities worldwide have become increasingly sophisticated. This evolution concerns governments, academics, the private sector, and society, all aiming to align with contemporary development trends while addressing urban issues such as congestion, health, environment, spatial planning, population, and education. Introduced in the 1990s alongside the liberalization of telecommunications and internet services, the smart city concept leverages advanced technology to enhance efficiency, sustainability, and quality of life. It has since expanded beyond major cities to districts and villages, reflecting a widespread need for improved governance services. Each region adapts the smart city concept to its vision, involving complex, multidimensional processes across governance, infrastructure, energy, environment, and services. Indonesia’s commitment is evident in policies like the 2015-2019 RPJMN and initiatives like the “Movement Towards 100 Smart Cities” program. At the ASEAN level, the ASEAN Smart City Network (ASCN) fosters regional collaboration for smart solutions. Countries worldwide are adopting national digital transformation strategies, including Indonesia, as outlined in the 2020-2024 RPJMN.

The 2024 Summer Course aims to deepen understanding of Smart Cities, Digital Transformation, and Society in Southeast Asia through case studies and international experiences, emphasizing the importance of multidisciplinary collaboration to address the region’s unique challenges and opportunities.
