For more than six years the Smart Cities Council has led the global smart cities agenda. Our core pillars of work have been through informing, educating, convening and advocating.
From 2020 we are dedicating resources to extend this work into the field of data leadership.
So what might this look like?
We will focus our work on:
developing a Declaration of Data Leadership, providing organisations with a 'north star' for their data journey
raising awareness and building capacity in the data essentials - purpose, privacy, security, ethics and governance
building opportunities around key open data 'activation' platforms, such as data trusts and digital twins
convening government leaders to exchange and network around their data leadership work
helping shape government policy, programs and initiatives around data and insights that can achieve our mission of data leadership within this generation.
