Submitted by Adam Beck on April 11, 2022

As part of its ongoing advocacy for the Brisbane 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games to be the most sustainable, inclusive and connected games, Smart Cities Council Australia New Zealand today released the second in a series of 'Connected Games' playbooks. The latest focusses on a South East Queensland Data Strategy.

This new playbook articulates a vision to help catalyse and accelerate greater prosperity and sustainability outcomes across SEQ, supporting all stakeholders in realising the benefits of procuring, analysing, simulating and visualising data. It presents three core principles being leadership and governance, transparency and trust and prosperity and productivity.

In the document, a phased series of actions and investments are described, covering initiatives such as:

  • establishment of foundational data leadership settings - purpose, privacy, security, ethics, governance, standards and stakeholders
  • drafting and signing of a Declaration of Data Collaboration between regional data custodians
  • establishment of a 2032 Games Data Leadership Advisory Council
  • building an SEQ Civic Data Trust and Data Exchange
  • drafting a legislative reform agenda
  • launching a SEQ Office of Small Business Digital Transformation

The playbook has been developed collaboratively by the Smart Cities Council 2032 Games Task Force.
