Help build resilient cities. You are invited to attend the Building Smart Communities event, a panel and interactive forum hosted in partnership with engage2 and the Smart Cities Council Australia New Zealand.

Hear from international experts, including:

  • Justin Herman from the US governments who is leading the US governments digital engagement team

  • Amelia Loye, engagement specialist and managing director of engage2
  • Adam Beck, Executive Director of Australia and New Zealand Smart Cities Council. 

The panel will be chaired by Department of Premier and Cabinet’s Gail Fairlamb

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 serve. This is how we build smart resilient communities.

Join us at The Science Exchange on 28th September. Tea, coffee and morning tea will be served on arrival. Registrations here.
