SCP E58: Smart Cities as a way of thinking, with David Batchelor

Sunday, 2 September

In this episode of the Smart City Podcast, I had a fantastic conversation with David Batchelor, a planner and history buff from Wellington, passionate about heritage and culture in our cities.
He is also a member of the Smart Cities Council Emerging Innovators and talks about Smart Cities being a way to create great connected spaces for the people in them, and about Smart Cities being a universal language, a level playing field where we can all communicate.
David tells us how New Zealand is currently embracing the Smart City concept and the importance of overall vision and strategy. He discusses some of the things that are happening in Wellington, particularly to do with resilience and tells us some really cool stuff about Smart heritage. We finish our conversation about public trust and the different types of feedback.
