Qetema is a project that aims to collaboratively build a sustainable smart city for future generations. Inspired by the need to influence a shift towards more sustainable societal behaviour, Qetema describes itself as a “group of people who believe in the need for major global changes, gathering to design and build a new city together”.

The project, split into three phases, is currently recruiting volunteers to help build awareness of the campaign and bring together like-minded people surrounding ideas of sustainable development, crowd-sourced funding, knowledge exchange and self-government.

In this fi rst phase, Qetema’s main goal is to gather a substantial mass, necessary to launch the project’s digital platform. The project hopes to achieve this by spreading the word about Qetema and ultimately becoming a globally recognised organization. This will require assistance from a variety of professions, including scientists, technicians, designers, communicators and anyone with a general interest in the project’s sustainable ethos.

Volunteer involvement at this stage will include:

  • Social media marketing
  • Building a strong network of partners
  • A crowd-funding campaign

To get involved, please visit the Qetema website, where a variety of involvement options are provided.
