World Population Day Webinar

World Population Day Webinar!

Friday 10th July 2020
12:00pm – 1:00pm AEST (2:00pm-3:00pm NZST)

World Population Day seeks to focus attention on the urgency and importance of population issues, including sustainable development, gender equality, poverty, maternal health, and human rights. With that in mind to address some of the issues raised in World Population Day, we’ve got two exciting speakers to address population challenges and opportunities from two very different angles.

Jannat Maqbool will bring the Smartcities perspective – what opportunities do Smartcity technologies offer towards managing equality and equity in city populations. What balance is there between technology, safety, and privacy? What about developing nations – how can they benefit from IoT devices that have a more minimal reliance on existing infrastructure than traditional technologies?

Michael Frost, representing the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare, sees data telling the story across people’s lives and understands the social impacts of health. He’ll share how addressing women’s health rights improve outcomes for society as well as how data can help governments make better policies on health.
