a city of innovation

Smart Christchurch’s vision is to promote Christchurch as an exemplar open and connected city, showcasing solutions that make life better and are replicated by others.

Smart Christchurch is exploring new technology and approaches that will help make our city a smarter, safer place to live, work and play. New smart technologies and sensors will allow us to gather real-time data on all sorts of things, so we can see how the city is functioning, and respond appropriately. Being a “smart city” will also bring many other benefits for Christchurch, such as better planning and decision-making, attracting international talent to the city, and creating new business opportunities.
