In line with the launching of the challenge and to gear up cities with the right knowledge and information in designing solutions for their entries, we will be conducting our first Liveable Cities Lab on 16 March 2020 at Globe Tower, Bonifacio Global City.
As we move towards the digital age, data is now called the new ‘oil’, which fuels better planning and informed decisions. Data plays an important role, especially in local governments. It allows local chief executives and managers to design better solutions, gain insights in delivering and enhancing services, formulating policies, and improve accountability and understanding of local operations.
The first Liveable Cities Lab will focus on Data Analytics 101: The Value and Use of Data to Manage Cities. The discussion will revolve around the importance of collecting timely and quality data, analytics, and the value of data science for cities. We will be assembling a team of data science experts and institutions, which collect data on cities to help them build up capacity for planning and design of city services.
Liveable Cities Lab: Data Analytics 101 is exclusive for those cities who joined the Liveable Cities Challenge
