86% of New Zealanders live in towns and cities. As we grow, local and central Governments are increasingly turning towards technology to create competitive, cost-effective cities that will support economic activity and safer, more resilient communities.

On 22nd November 2018, Public Sector Network launches 2 half-day events, Smart Cities New Zealand and Resilient Communities New Zealand. (Separately bookable)

Smart Cities New Zealand investigates New Zealand’s journey in building capacity and capabilities with technology, including success stories, current projects and the strategy going forward. Attendees will discuss budgetary models, plan for inclusivity, and evaluate Smart technologies to ensure investments – financial, collaborative efforts and time – pay off.

Resilient Communities New Zealand focuses on strengthening our communities in a country rated “high hazard” for almost every possible natural catastrophe by the international Global Facility for Disaster Reduction and Recovery. Attendees will discuss public-private collaboration, inclusivity of diversity, and community building to increase resilience and safety.
