    Episode 74: Let's talk Civic Data Trusts

    Episode 74: Let's talk Civic Data Trusts

    Welcome to the "Data Dialogues" - an online engagement series as part of Smart Cities Week Australia New Zealand 2020.

    This dialogue will focus on unpacking the 'civic data trust' - what are they, what can they offer and the pathway for building one.

    While few data trusts have been deployed and lessons learned shared, much thought leadership does exist, citing the 'tool' as a means to enable better governance around the use of data, and ensuring that its benefits are distributed in an equitable way.

    Join our dialogue guests - Aimee Whitcroft (data 4d), Jessica Christiansen-Franks (Neighbourlytics) and Dorotea Baljevic (Lendlease) - as we explore the what, why and how of civic data trusts.

    Episode 71: Innovation districts and our urban development futures

    Over the years there have been waves of 'growth frameworks' - green buildings, sustainable communities, resilient neighbourhoods... In this episode of the Chronicles we sit down with Niall Cunningham - WSP's City Advisory Lead - who takes shares with us his views on the current and emerging models of urban development, including innovation districts, smart communities and other urban and suburban growth models. At a time when our experience and relationship with our cities, their public spaces and shared services have been tested in new ways, we need to ensure we remain outcomes focused and that we measure our impact.
