How the Sèmè City team was inspired by the organisation of an African village to facilitate a joint experimentation process with a number of different stakeholders.

Launched in 2019, ASToN is a network of 11 African cities who want to use digital tools to meet their local challenges, which also exist on a global scale, such as waste treatment, land management, urban transport and tax management. As a result, these cities are fully involved in a digital transition process that also involves a transformation in the way their devise and carry out their local projects, in particular through the integration of more participatory approaches.

ASToN network brings 11 African cities together to develop digital practices in order to create sustainable & inclusive cities.
