Mitchell Joachim of Terreform1 was invited for a lecture by The Economist in the framework of the conference The Ideas Economy.
Mitchell Joachim recently proposed a smart city that will be able to eliminate pollution. He envisions a 'city that cleans up the impact of the last hundred and fifty years of industrial waste. It has to have a positive impact.'

His lecture is in the same lines. He imagines a smart mobility consisting of flexible cars, smart, adapted to an eco-smart city, with high batteries inside.
