The Nelson Mandela Bay SMART CITY initiative seeks to develop a smart city in Nelson Mandela Bay based on a partnership approach, to address social and economic challenges prevalent in Nelson Mandela Bay.
On 27 March 2017, 50 representatives of civil society, Non-Governmental Organisations, local government, government agencies, the University and other academic institutions and organised business actively participated in The First Conversation. Propella Business Incubator hosted this conversation in partnership with the Kamva Leadership Institute and the Regional Innovation Forum, at Propella Business Incubator in Humerail, Port Elizabeth.
Robust dialogue was the order of the day, as participants were eager to share ideas to shape the Nelson Mandela Bay SMART CITY concept, guided by four keys questions:
- What current strategies and projects are in place or planned in Nelson Mandela Bay that contribute to a SMART CITY?
- What target groups will be involved and / or benefit?
- Dream with a Deadline: What does Nelson Mandela Bay as a SMART CITY look like and by when?
- What contribution can you make to the SMART CITY movement?
