Digital Twins for Greenfields and Regional Areas


By Adam Beck | Executive Director, Smart Cities Council Australia New Zealand | Secretariat, Centre for Data Leadership | Administrator, ANZ Digital Twin Hub


Will digital twins hold the key to fast tracking approvals and delivery of a more liveable urban fringe?


How will government authorities, designers and developers embrace this shift? How should we prepare for the ‘new urban’ and ensure that we are delivering liveable communities where population shifts are proving inevitable? Can digital twinning help us understand what society needs and where? What real-time data and simulations would assist us in planning these communities?


Join this panel session for a discussion with leading professionals that shared their insights on behind the scene work to champion liveable cities.


Our panel of speakers included:

  • Bronwen Clark, Executive Officer National Growth Areas Alliance

  • Dr Adam Mowlam, Strategic Lead Digital Twin, Strategic Land Assessment & Information DELWP

  • Dr. Melanie Davern, Director Australian Urban Observatory, RMIT

  • Paul Cassidy, Director Outer Melbourne, Victorian Planning Authority

  • Kelly Grigsby, CEO, Wyndham City Council
