13:30 - 17:00 The Science of Wellbeing and Smart Cities Workshop

This is the most exciting trend in the smart cities sector – because it is about cities leveraging the power of data to better understand the people they serve; and then using that information to increase their ability to operate more effectively, responsively, and efficiently by using scientifically determined community subjective wellbeing measurements.

Join us at:

Telstra Customer Insights Centre
Level 2, 400 George St
Sydney

In addition – since there is an ability to correlate economic and other quantitative data with community subjective wellbeing, a city can see directly how improved wellbeing improves liveability, workability and sustainability.

Workshop participants will have a unique opportunity to:

* Get an introduction to the science of wellbeing and its public sector application

* Find out why other cities are already measuring wellbeing to improve outcomes

* Learn when, why and how to combine wellbeing data with other metrics

* Understand how to build out a wellbeing framework for your city

* Take home insights and tools to apply the science of wellbeing to your own community

This workshop goes far beyond talk and into application. Attendees will take home usable insights and the knowledge and tools to apply what they’ve learned in their own communities.
