View Profile Stellenbosch Innovation District Stellenbosch Innovation District The Stellenbosch Innovation District aims to change not just the physical environment of Stellenbosch and surrounds but also the mind-sets and perceptions of the communities living there. The approach they are taking to meet this challenging task is innovative. This is not a project that can be fulfilled with traditional design alone but rather a mix of designs across various elements of the project. Most importantly, the project advocates the need for social and institutional design to achieve social and economic development. The SID hopes to turn Stellenbosch into a smart and sustainable town by 2020. To do this, the project has four core focus areas. The first is the design of an online innovation system and smart projects matrix that allows for the exchange of innovations, ideas and resources, sharing ideas and showcasing specific projects. Design networks and eco-systems will be developed to enable collaboration of existing and new projects and bridge the gap between communities in the area. By using design to improve spaces and create new urban nodes of innovation within the area, SID aims to bridge the divide between the spaces and places that have and those that have not. The SID is about using social design to transform the perceptions of communities living side by side, developing a culture of collaboration through innovative ideas – a goal far more challenging than just changing the spatial design of an area. With a pioneering model where South African solutions can be invented, tested and shared towards creating a knowledge economy in South Africa and on the entire African continent, the SID aims to take African innovation and use collaboration to turn it into a global conversation.
