With the technological explosion of innovations, apps and gadgets and the connective immediacy of communications, information and intrusion, how do people fit into the picture? Are people, the population diversity within the community, just being swept along as part of a technological lava flow, hardening at the sides of an incessant stream? Examples of community involvement methodologies implemented on two projects presented suggest otherwise and a case study demonstrates how embracing the diverse make up of our community as partners in development, rather than merely recipients of development, can deliver benefits central to an understanding of a smart city.

Join us at the upcoming 9th International Urban Design Conference at the Hyatt Canberra from Monday 7 November to Wednesday 9 November 2016. For more information and to secure your spot at this annual event please visit the Conference Website.
