Explain your idea in details:

The last 100 years have seen an incredible increase in the planet's population. In Morocco "the country where I live", we believe by 2020 (9/10) of us will live in urban areas. So how would that look like if everyone moves to the urban areas and what kind of services should be offering to everyone. A city is a complex and interconnected system, with the power of GLOWING CITY, we will be able to see how this or that element in built environment can affect the rest. People still feel a sense of commitment to their cities and are actively involved in activities to improve the quality of life there. Many studies show that the highest trend in smart cities for the next years is citizen engagement. So my idea is based on this trend to release the potential of the smart city, Glowing city App can solve this problem by making the new normal of cities about people and their abilities and capability for cooperation, as the only lasting resource a city has.The GLOWING CITY App contain four things: A) Data storage B) Analyzer C) Decision maker D) An interface easy to use by the citizens like the interface of "Instagram/Facebook"So you can simply take a photo of the place you want to transform after that use the city tags to clarify your idea and add description and location.. your idea then becomes a hotspot meaning other users are notified when passing nearby.. the citizens can like share and comment every time you share an idea, politicians and developers are notified... Decision makers can there for base decisions on real data according to what citizens actually want.
