Digital Tools and Planning

What are they and what are the opportunities and limitations?

Join us for a discussion with Ruth Berry Co-Director (Tangata Tiriti) Building Better Homes, Towns and Cities National Science Challenge.

In this session Ruth Berry, Co-Director (Tangata Tiriti) Building Better Homes, Towns and Cities National Science Challenge (BBHTC) will give an overview of some of the digital tools, twins and products and processes that are being developed for use in Aotearoa New Zealand. Many of these have not been developed by the planning profession, but most promise varying degrees of revolution for planning. Ruth will share some thoughts on the opportunities, limitations and issues with digital twins and tools for planning, using BBHTC research and experience as a case study.

We will finish with a group discussion on experiences, opportunities and issues. We hope you can join us!
