Building Smart Communities
Smart cities understand, value and leverage the resources within their communities. The people and organisations that want to contribute, the connections and social networks that exist both online and offline and the social capital that is exchanged among them.
Find out how technologies are being used by governments across Australia, New Zealand, Europe and America to understand, engage and work with the communities they service. Join the panel including Amelia Loye, Rebecca Rumbul (MySociety UK), Adam Beck (Smart Cities Council Aus. & NZ), Gail Fairlamb, Don Sharples, and Nigel Morris.
Unfortunately, Justin Herman is now not able to participate in this event.
