Ibm Smarter Cities
The IBM Smarter Cities Challenge is a global competition and the winners become part of the global IBM Smarter Cities partnership. This gives access to cutting edge expertise and resources. The City of Townsville was keen to win a place and use the partnership to build the city’s renowned sustainability initiatives.
We conceived of a project that would bring energy conservation, renewable energy, behaviour change, data and storytelling together. The proposal itself also used storytelling and this was one of the factors that made it stand out.
Townsville won and became an IBM Smarter City. Key IBM staff worked with city leaders and produced a roadmap towards a more sustainable future. The initiative continues to introduce pioneering innovations to the city.
