WeAlmaty was a three-year initiative that aimed to help the city of Almaty to realise its 2020 development vision around culture, business and active citizenship by supporting local authority leaders to work with civil society. It supported new forms of cooperation and joint action between civil society organisations, local authorities and the private sector that helped Almaty to fulfil its goal to develop into a ‘smart city’. 

WeAlmaty was designed and run by a coalition made up of the British Council, the Kazakh-British Technical University, Almaty Akimat and the Almaty Development Centre, and funded by a grant from the European Union. The project worked with universities, creative and social entrepreneurs, and citizens of Almaty.
