Plan Smart


The "Smart City" strategy as a sustainable development mechanism. 


The term "Smart City" is used as an instrument to serve a vision of the future: a smart city project that applies a transformation strategy that fosters social, economic and environmental sustainability. The San Sebastian Smart Plan 2016-2020 establishes a strategic line with shared objectives and defines a public Action Plan for the period 2016-2020 through which the city will effectively plan and implement its development projects in the urban field under an integrating and Smart perspective.


This Smart Plan is the result of the development of the European Steep project, led by Fomento de San Sebastián along with San Sebastian City Council’s Department for the Environment, which has been carried out within the Smart Cities call of the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme. The objective of Steep has been the development of a comprehensive Sustainability Plan in each member city (San Sebastian, Bristol and Florence). The results obtained from the project have been the Smart Plan for the municipality as well as the development of an Action Plan for Vega del Urumea and the local agents have been directly involved in the definition of the main lines of work in the Smart field.
