Smart Cities: Communities of the Future

Re-imagining our sense of place

2020 has proved to be an enormous year of upheaval; and as a result of the changes we're currently experiencing, we’ve been given an incredible opportunity to reflect on what our communities and cities look like, and ask some pretty big questions.

What aspects of our communities do want to take forward into a post-COVID world? What do we want to change now for the better? What do we want work to look like in the future? What is the future for central, densely-populated cities? How do we want to move around communities? Do we still need to move around communities? Do we have the digital infrastructure we need for new ways of life? How can we address the digital divide?

We’ll be exploring these questions and themes at Smart Cities: Communities of the Future, a new virtual conference being delivered by Monkey Media and the Australian Smart Communities Association – the team behind the Smart Cities conference series.

Once again, this conference delivered by Monkey Media and ASCA will be completely free to attend, providing you with learning opportunities, delivered all over the world, which anyone and everyone can access.
