New smart city or "ubiquitous city" built from scratch on 600 hectares of reclaimed land along Incheon's waterfront, 65 kilometres southwest of Seoul Embodies two avant-garde concepts: (1) the Aerotropolis, and (2) the Ubiquitous City (U-City). The largest private real estate development in the world’s history Songdo’s urban model bears several distinct features: its ubiquitous computing allows it to micro-manage numerous aspects of the city such as energy consumption and traffic; and the city can "interact" with citizens at the individual level.
Massachusetts-based waste managment company BigBelly and the City of New York City implemented in downtown Manhattan connected bins equipped with chips telling trash collectors once the bin is full. They now are about to be turned into Wi-Fi hotspots. With a high bandwidth, the signal emitted is excellent since the bins are located on street level and thus, don’t receive any interference from skyscrapers.
The project, a $20 billion, 28-acre commercial and residential area on Manhattan’s west side, is touted as being the largest development in the city since the Rockefeller center. Hudson Yards will digitally track environmental and lifestyle factors—like traffic, energy consumption, and air quality—and will include a trash-disposal system to remove waste via underground pneumatic tubes. It is being designed specifically to bring in millennials, and to provide the highest quality of life for those living, working, and visiting the area.
The Hungarian Food Bank Association is a non-profit organization that works to make a link between surplus food and people in need in Hungary in order to help reduce poverty, hunger and malnutrition.

Since our foundation: we distributed 42 300 tons of food worth over 67,4 million $ (20,3 billion HUF) to more than 340 000 people in need in partnership with almost 325 non-governmental organizations and municipalities.
