During June, a series of dynamic workshops in Australia and Vietnam (funded through the Australia-ASEAN Council) will bring together experts from both countries to share lessons and experiences in smart city planning and policy.
The project will support knowledge sharing amongst different stakeholders across government, urban planning and design industries, universities and research institutions focused on planning for smart cities.
The workshops will explore the role of local infrastructure at a neighbourhood level and community participation in smart city projects. They will revisit agendas from the Smart City Project recently launched by the Ho Chi Minh City People Committee and the Australian Smart Communities Program.
The workshops will be accessible to a broad audience via social media, enhancing awareness of the role of community, and the significance of emerging technology and innovation, in smart city planning.
