World – Beating Quality Of Life
NEOM’S unmatched livability and economic prospects will be powered by aprofitable economy that will pioneer the future of nine sectors:
ENERGY AND WATER
As the sun rises over NEOM, it will glint against vast
fields of solar panels paired with wind turbines and
light up enormous stretches of energy grids storing
power for generations.
All this being sufficient to supply all of NEOM and beyond with low-cost regenerative energy.
The beams, bridges and archways of this grand destination will be immaculate, untainted by pollution. Buildings will remain pristine and the air fresh and clear. And NEOM scientists will pioneer the future of energy production, use and storage – for water, gas, oil, solar, wind, algae… and whole new kinds of energy the world has yet to hear of.
Across land, air and sea, NEOM will become a global hub of connectivity.
Within its boundaries, it will harness progressive, automated, 100% green
transport systems that will glide smoothly and safely in three dimensions
along both superbly efficient and scenic routes.
Beyond its borders, it will create brand new connections; like an
awe-inspiring new bridge that will link Asia with Africa and be
as strong as its iconic design.
Tomorrow’s healthcare will start life here. The world will look to NEOM for next-generation
gene therapy, genomics, stem cell research, nanobiology and bioengineering.
Biotech research means no less than a quest for the world’s future wellbeing
and fulfilment. Attracting the talent to research, develop and apply our
new knowledge, NEOM will be a new nexus for this vital activity.
How will humanity produce fresh food in a desert with no water? Or create fresh drinking water at sea?
World prosperity is locked behind these questions – NEOM will find the key. It will lead the way in state-of-the-art technologies like arid and seawater farming and solar-powered greenhouses. Its vertical urban farms will soar skywards – delivering crisp, fresh produce to its citizens with unprecedented speed and space efficiency
There’s never been a more exciting time for manufacturing. New materials and methods are breaking open whole worlds of possibility for our future living. Nowhere is better placed
to take advantage of these possibilities than NEOM.
NEOM won’t just innovate in nanotechnology, 3D printing, sensors, IoT devices, electrical
vehicles, robotics and renewables. Starting from scratch means a chance to innovate
the very systems underpinning those innovations of R&D, supply, transport, infrastructure.
And a chance to test out inventions like personalized, fully automated, point-to-point
transfers, passenger drones, self-learning traffic systems in a live destination setting and
refine them to perfection.
The world’s most distinguished directors will look to NEOM’s creatives for inspiration.
Talent – both established and new – will flood in, wanting to be part of the action. They’ll be welcomed with all the support and infrastructure they need, from production houses to studios so they can produce, deliver and distribute film, TV, music, video games and social media. NEOM will seize the world’s attention, becoming a media hub not just for the Middle East but the world.
NEOM will be the place to be. Packed full of sports, performance and visual arts venues.
World-renowned restaurants by glittering marina watersides. Elite shopping experiences
that outpace the world’s capitals.
And NEOM will redefine what urban entertainment means, by turning up the dial and raising the scale. With futuristic, record-breaking theme parks. Endless natural parkland. The world’s largest garden in the heart of the metropolis. A waterpark with a wave machine
where Olympians will perfect their technique. It will attract tourists from thousands of miles around. And for residents, bring epic to the everyday
TECHNOLOGICAL AND DIGITAL SCIENCES
Think of the future and a few key things spring to mind. Artificial intelligence. Virtual reality. Smart, connected devices that make life effortless. The Internet of Things.
NEOM will innovate on an open source platform, inviting the world’s top
data scientists to analyse data and innovate. Inventors will enjoy a world-first
opportunity – to use the destination itself as a test ground for urban innovations.
LIVING AS NEOM’S FOUNDATION
What will life be like in NEOM?
NEOM is positioned to become an aspirational societythat heralds the future of human civilization by offering its inhabitants an idyllic lifestyle set against a backdrop of a community founded on modern architecture, lush green spaces, quality of life, safety and technology in service of humanity paired with excellent economic opportunities.
