The Ruler of Dubai wants people to help build the “best city in the world” by sharing their ideas in a virtual majlis.
HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, also UAE Vice President and Prime Minister, said the Mohammed Bin Rashid Smart Majlis, a website where people can submit ideas and comments, will be under his direct supervision.
Sheikh Mohammed tweeted: “Our traditional majlis is open, our smart majlis is open, the door is open for everyone to make their mark on Dubai’a future.
“Building successful societies is a continuous process of development, government is part of the team and not the whole team. Ideas and comments are appreciated to build the best city in the world,” he added.
Smart council for brainstorming
Representatives of 30 government authorities will also form a ‘smart council’ and carry out smart brainstorming sessions as part of the initiative.
“Our goal is to offer an opportunity for each member of the community to attend our council, provide ideas, debate and work hand in hand in the development process,” Sheikh Mohammed said.
How to submit ideas
In order to post an idea or comment, a person would need to give it a title, a short description, specify the subject area of the idea and add your location.
The website, mbrmajlis.ae, is in both Arabic and English.
