Engaging citizens in data governance in net zero precincts

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference PaperResearch


Data governance is an emerging field of research and practice concerned with how various actors develop rules and processes to successfully manage data assets. Limited scholarship has been undertaken on data governance and smart city development in the context of local sustainability initiatives. Our work addresses this gap by investigating the role of community engagement in data governance for net zero transformation in the context of a university precinct in Melbourne, Australia. This paper presents preliminary results from a participatory process that engaged ‘precinct citizens’ in the collaborative development of basic data governance prototypes using human-centred design. The processes and outputs of this research are being used to inform the development of draft citizen‐focused recommendations for best practice in data governance in the precinct
