It’s often the mentality of a “We’ve always done it this way” that sadly holds us back from forging new changes and achieving new results. For any individual or even large-scale city to produce great outcomes, innovation is an essential part of the toolkit. Innovation will drive us forward into the age of digitalisation, and it will make the difference between the city we currently live in and the smart city we will all relish residing in the near future.

Innovation Is The Difference
Community Inspired Innovation
Historically, our cities developed and changed as result of planners needing to respond to the demands and views of multiple stakeholders. What makes community innovation different from other forms of social innovation is placing the focus on the community as the champions of change.
We aim to get communities involved and enthusiastic about Smart City and become drivers of innovation. If we can accurately demonstrate to the various community stakeholders where we are now, the vision of where we can be, plus the methods we need to utilise to affect that progress, then we envisage our cities joining us for the journey. A major part of this process is seeing where our planning policies intersect with people’s day to day lives and developing progress that will help shape our future urban environment in socially sensitive and environmentally friendly ways.
We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used to create them.
