Future Ready

The Australian Smart Communities Association and the Australian Government have partnered to deliver a series of Future Ready webinars to kick-start communities’ digital transformation journeys.  

Future Ready is a smart cities incubator series that sits alongside the Smart Cities and Suburbs Program. It uses collaboration, connection and co-learning to grow smart city capability. We’ll explore smart city case studies from global leaders, share the tips and the tricks of digital success, investigate new business models, and talk citizen-centric design.

This series will bring together local government, industry, research organisations and innovators from across Australia, encouraging knowledge sharing, new partnerships and active learning. Each webinar will be recorded and made available in a series of videos on this page. 
'Thanks for running the Future Ready webinar today. Sergio’s presentation was ‘on point’, and I look forward to applying some of the frameworks and processes discussed in the Alice Springs context.' - Isabelle Collins, Policy Officer, Regional Network Group, Department of the Chief Minister, Northern Territory Government of Australia
