Event description

Description

About the future for the future.
The Future State of the Territory is a mix of talks and debate on technology and democracy, media and branding, identity and inclusivity, smart cities... and our city - Canberra.

The 2017 theme is change
Canberra. Australia’s first knowledge economy, the original smart, is increasingly defined by these two words. Original - discovering the unknown first, be it in the depths of space or the leafy labs of universities, the exchange of ideas in the laneways of civic or the shiny-floored halls of institutes. Smart - becoming a smart city, excelling in real and artificial intelligence, using our innate sense of democracy, fairness and inclusivity to make big decisions, our collective brain power to solve the world’s challenges.

Debates facilitated by the ACT Chief Minister.
At this event, the ACT Chief Minister Andrew Barr will deliver a brief speech and run an interactive workshop with attendees on how our city makes the most of its unique assets, how leaders can represent the needs of all levels of society, how Canberra can continue to ensure our reach always exceeds our grasp.

Dee Madigan [Campaign Edge, ABC’s Gruen, The Drum] will explore how to make change happen. So many of the big issues from gender to marriage equality, climate change to STEM subject take-up, are not utilising the skills of those who excel at change: communicators, marketers, storytellers, advertisers. Dee will give tips on how to influence change to create the future.
