Philips recognizes and understands the challenges of 'keeping cities livable' and is committed to innovating simple solutions that improve the quality of peoples' lives in cities. Some of these include 'light on demand' systems in public areas that enable people to feel safe outdoors after dark, DirectLife, a personal activity program that registers people's activity during the day and helps companies encourage their staff to become more physically active, and telehealth solutions that enable people with chronic diseases to live independently in their homes.
At Philips, we recognize that we all need to contribute to developing innovations if we want to enhance our lives in cities for years to come. That's why Philips has launched the Philips Livable Cities Award, a global initiative designed to generate practical, achievable ideas for improving the health and well-being of people living in cities.
Philips is a diversified health and well-being company, with a mission to improve people's lives through meaningful innovations.
