Nairobi, as a city with a multiplicity of distinctive cultures and urban planning, needs to be re-thought and include the creatives’ talents, and create a new way of seeing things with a new perspective. That means not allowing ourselves to be engrained limited by opinions and traditions, as is currently the case, the choices being left to only a select few engineers and city planners.
The three central pillars – talent, technology, and tolerance – should be used as a creative help in branding, or in the city to underline the corporate features or values that stand out.
Government and public support is the key that helps creating a homogeneous society and enables us to tolerate each other.
