    (On-screen title: Connecting the Dots. On-screen text: Mobility, food, living environment. Connecting the Dots. Acceleration, breakthroughs and co-creation in food, mobility and buildings. 30 January 2015, Utrecht, the Netherlands. Rli, Council for the Environment and Infrastructure. Interviewer:)


    INTERVIEWER: What do you expect from today?
    I'm just curious what the debate is here in the Netherlands.
    I work mostly outside Holland.
    Well, I hope to be learning some more about the technologies
    and how they influence the Dutch economy.

    (Says a man.)

    HENRY MEIJDAM: We'd like to stimulate more debates about technology
    and their positive or negative impact on values, starting with this conference.
    AGNES VAN ARDENNE: In many ways we are crossing thresholds.
    During our survey we discovered the dynamics of people's power
    in physical and digital networks.
    ANDRÉ KUIPERS: I believe very much in young people, who have bright, new ideas.
    I think technology is the solution to being much smarter,
    more efficient and much more sustainable and being in balance with nature.
    CARLOTA PEREZ: The possibility of a sustainable, global golden age
    lies ahead of us, right this minute.
    INTERVIEWER: What did you find the most interesting
    about the keynote speakers this morning?
    Carlota Perez was, of course, the most inspiring of the speakers this morning.
    They are all enthusiastic about technology
    and how technology can provide us with new insights
    but they all look at it from a different perspective.
    It's not the technology that changes society
    but really it will change when society asks for technology
    and technology adapts to that demand from society.
    So that was the most important thing I learned this morning.

    (Says a man. On-screen text: Demonstrations of innovations. Men are drawing pictures on a large sheet of paper against a wall. Some sort of wheel with a standard that has a tablet attached to it is riding around. On-screen text: Presentation of the Rli digital magazine. Meijdam:)


    MEIJDAM: Today the Council for the Environment and Infrastructure
    presents the 'Survey of technological innovations in the living environment'.
    One important statement of the Council in its publication is
    that the new, faster dynamics of technological development
    ask for a broader and earlier social debate on the impact of innovations.
    Well, just...
    - Here we go.

    (A man touches a tablet.)

    There it is.

    (Meijdam and the man look at a picture that's projected behind them. Maarten Camps:)


    MAARTEN CAMPS: Technological possibilities are coming soon
    and they will come without doubt.
    And an important question is how are we going to deal with it?
    And that's when policy questions come onto the table.

    (On-screen text: Meet & greet sessions. People are sitting in a circle, listening to presentations.)


    (On-screen text: Round table discussions. People are sitting in small groups around tables, talking to each other. A man stands behind a lectern. Jaap Seidell:)


    JAAP SEIDELL: When Ban Ki-moon from the United Nations was asked
    what was his main concern regarding the planet in the next 20 or 30 years,
    he said: It's feeding the planet.
    BRYANT WALKER SMITH: Understand the risks that automated vehicles pose
    but also appreciate the risks that the status quo imposes.
    KENT LARSON: I like the way this conference is framed, Connecting the Dots.
    I think it's a much more useful way of thinking about it
    than more narrowly defined, like, you know, 'green cities'.


    (Says Kent Larson. On-screen text: Panel discussions. Various men and women are standing on a stage. Their audience is sitting around white tables. Behind the speakers texts are projected on a screen. A young man and a young woman address the audience. On-screen text: Pitches of students.)


    INTERVIEWER: What did you learn today?
    That we really don't know what cities are.
    There's a lot of work for politicians, for government, both local and global, to do.
    Very exciting challenges and changes are going on
    and I'm quite energised by the conference actually.
