The IBM: People for Smarter Cities campaign closes on February 25th, 4:00pm PST.
Let’s face it, one of the most important things to people are the cities they call home. That’s why it’s necessary to make cities as smart and efficient as possible in order to make life in those cities as good as it can be. To do that, IBM has created a place to bring together citizens, city leaders and smart ideas—to spark positive change in cities all around the world. Because we know a smart idea in one city can make any city smarter, IBM created a place to share those ideas and connect the leaders and forward thinkers who will put them to work. At people4smartercities.com
, leaders can become inspired and citizens can get insights and share knowledge within the community.
Now IBM is reaching out to citizens—thinkers, problem solvers, and creators—and inviting them to join the mission to help make their city smarter and bring their ideas to life. A smart idea is one that drives positive change. It can be an existing story of success, or a simple, new idea that can improve the way a city works. Because there are so many ways to make a city smarter, we want ideas related to any one of 8 Smarter City topics: education, healthcare, environmental, energy & water, public safety, government, buildings and transportation.
