The Social Impact Task Force will be part ‘think tank’ and part ‘do tank’, to help lift-up opportunity for our most vulnerable populations, and build thriving communities through the application of technology, data, and intelligent design.
We don’t have a clear agenda, but we have some robust ideas. The Task Force will help create the agenda, and an action plan, that will help SCCANZ be Australia’s foremost advocate for smart cities being a model for community prosperity and opportunity.
Task Force membership is open to representatives of organisations that are passionate about the opportunity of the intersection of technology and social change.
This Task Force will have part of its focus on social equity, and the conditions contributing to it. This will support our goal helping people affected by poverty, inequality and disadvantage.
We are also excited about other core social issues we are interested in advancing – affordable housing, community engagement, human rights, neighbourhood sustainability, and health and wellness.
