About Smart Cities
Our cities, and the way we live and move about in them, are changing.
Today, we have access to a plethora of new technology which can make our lived experience in cities, towns and suburbs better than it has ever been before. Thanks to new technologies, such as energy efficiency optimisation in buildings, interconnected transport modes and digitised utilities which are optimised based on actual consumption patterns, there are so many ways our cities can be smarter, better places to live.
But with the advent of great technology comes great responsibility. City-makers must find the balance between technological innovation, and creating the kinds of cities and places where people actually want to live and be, and that also improve social outcomes like wellbeing.
The Smart Cities online hub has been developed to keep you up-to-date with all of the latest technology, and thinking, when it comes to developing the optimal cities, towns and places of the future. Our vision is that this hub will arm place-makers with the critical information they need to deliver a better future for communities all over Australia.
