Digital Strategy

In response to the opportunities that technology changes provide to a city like Wellington, we have considered how Wellington can become a smart city through development and implementation of a digital strategy.

In formulating this strategy, we looked at what the digital sector’s perceptions of Wellington as a digital city are, what the current strengths are and what might be changed or better supported to develop it in the future. We asked for ideas about where we, as a city, would like to aim and we asked for ideas about how to get there.

The aim of the strategy is to set the direction for Wellington to achieve global recognition as a creative digital city and evolve to a Creative Digital Capital.

The strategy is focused in three areas:

  • Make Wellington the place where talent wants to live
  • Inspire shared knowledge and development of ideas and creativity.
  • Make Wellington a world leading place for digital activity.
