For the first time in Australia, the Tasmanian Government has committed to sharing data assets with communities in Tasmania with the goal of aligning to the newly launched It takes a Tasmanian village’ – Child and Youth Wellbeing Strategy and for improving social outcomes for all Tasmanians.

As part of Spark Festival 2022, Seer Data’s Kristi Mansfield spoke with the pioneers of Government to Community data sharing in Tasmania: Antony Deck from Department of Premier & Cabinet and Kylie Burgess from Burnie Works. Facilitated by Kristi Mansfield, CEO of Seer Data and Analytics. The conversation included the great data divide, how data sharing and storytelling can help change the world for Tasmanians and why Government agencies should share data assets with communities.

There are macro shifts emerging in Australia that are seeing a change within government bodies and other large data custodians move towards a recognition of data as a public asset and the societal benefits of data sharing. The future vision of the Australian Data Strategy is for Australians to have access to reliable and relevant data and to create a data-driven society by 2030. What does this mean at a grassroots community level? How will this improve lives and outcomes for Australians.

Work has just commenced to deliver a pioneering Government to Community data sharing solution, powered by Seer Data & Analytics, which will allow communities to align to the state’s ‘It takes a Tasmanian village’ – Child and Youth Wellbeing Strategy and Indicator Framework – and to take actions to improve outcomes in their communities through data collaboration, data storytelling, shared measurement and learning.

Access to data, data sharing, and storytelling empowers communities with:

  • The tools to tell the stories that matter most
  • Knowledge of what’s working, what’s not, and what needs to change
  • The ability to efficiently distribute effort and investment
  • Sovereignty, Self-determination, and governance
  • Ownership of their narrative and their future
  • The power to improve lives and outcomes, and change the world at a local level

Scaling Government to Community Data Sharing 

Sharing Government data assets to communities is made possible through Seer Data, a proven, trusted, and scalable platform that fosters trust with community, meets government safety and security protocols, and enables better outcomes through local decision making, and community self-determination.
