“Food for Thought” Breakfast Session: Smart City?
08:00 to 10:00 - 23 May 2019
Tshimologong Precinct, 41 Juta St, Johannesburg, 2001

The session focused on what key practitioners think “smart city” means in a South African — or specific city — context.

We looked at illustrations that applied (and even problematised) the concept, but also ones that began to give a sense of where we could be going with this idea. How can various actors in the civic tech space (techies, entrepreneurs, industry players, community residents, public duty-bearers, academics, etc.) contribute to smarter cities?

Our Speakers
